I've tried to include some white into my garden as was lacking, your 'white stuff' looks great. I must seriously look into getting parahebe and nemesia to go under my roses

I love a splash of white in the garden. I have Gillenia trifoliata and it is lovely. the white 'glows in the twilight.
I also think that white lupin is stunning.

I must have a look at what I have in the white palette in my garden.

Thanks all. The lily and the Hydrangea are my favourites.

Read the title and jumped to the conclusion that the 'white stuff' referred to was going to be a fungus of some sort being a problem. Just goes to show that you mustn't jump to conclusions! They are all lovely, I particularly like the little star shaped one, which I can't put a name to, and you have Lilies that haven't been eaten by Lily beetles!

You were (W)right about the lovely white flowers, they really do glow in the dusk! I have a couple of white Begonias on the balcony railing & they really stand out on a dark day or when the day is coming to an end!

I love white flowers and pleased to say I do have a lot here, no white lilies though Karen, lost mine a few years ago and keep forgetting to buy more, you are right about the twilight they stand out more than any others ...Lovely photographs..

The lupin is my favourite too. Getting white into the garden must be in the air. I bought two white Potentillas last year, a biggish one and one which I hope will be prostrate. Your garden is as lovely as ever!

like the other members I was also thinking "moonlight garden" it's amazing how even variegated leaves pop out at you in the moonlight. beautiful assortment, Karen. Btw...you know what I always think of when you say "white stuff"... no, no please, not yet! lol..

Lovely blog Karen, great sequence of photos. For a horrible moment ... like a few other members, I thought you had the cold white, unmentionable stuff ... <];-))

I have lived far enough north, Karen, that I've seen snow in every month Except July. July is summer in the high arctic and everything thaws, grows, blossoms and seeds in 4 short weeks. I have seen a few flakes as late as the end of June, though.
