snowflakes in the garden

 as the sky loosens another handful of its winter offering, i am inspired to feature here some of summer's white bits.
 starting with the daffodils
 and bleeding heart.

deutzia.
 this lovely spirea opens with a slight pink blush and whitens as it matures.
wonderful for bouquets.  the first photo of this post is a close up.

 spires of valerian - like the spirea, must be picked in bud stage for bouquets-
or there will be a snowfall of petals.
foxglove-


  white peonies
 matricaria 
jaccqueline du pre rose
 dusty miller and stock

 orlaya and sweet peas

scabiosa and the limelight hydrangea.
 and finally, the whirls of the seed pods of wild clematis.
