Those are nice and I do like the tall ones for the back, that is why I got 'Snow Queen' Siberian Iris, I am pretty sure it is my only white too.

I always get sidetracked with the blues and pink-purples. Whites are really important and thay drwa attention to other areas.

I like to plant whites with the darker color for the added contrast. It makes them really POP.

Well, some folks have a white garden only.

I might have mentioned this here before but the addition of whites is key for an entire garden composition.
In watercolor painting there is a rule to leave 1/3 rd of the painting white.

Thumbs up I did not know that. Originally my front yard was supposed to be all white flowers but none were blooming at the same time and it didn't have that pop I was looking for. However the white shrubs look great against the brown house. I still have whites but I think I need more, most of my whites are shrubs, like the camelia bush, at the same time I like the evergreens so I need to find a balance.

Great photos, all. What an enjoyable tour on such a blustery day. Here's a couple favorite combos of mine:

Very nice, no such thing as too much yellow! I love those pink flowers in the second picture, Bonehead. Also I see an old sewing machine! Works out great in that Cottage Garden. What is the variegated plant in the center of the third picture?

Susan, the variegated plant is a masterwort, Astrantia major 'Sunningdale Variegated'. The foliage is the attraction, although it does get greenish white flowers. I love that combo, but unfortunately have a hard time with either the lavender abrieta or moss phlox (never quite sure which is which) and it died out on me.

The 'too much yellow' is for that one bed against the barn. Both the lady's mantle and corydalis tend to colonize and then I added 'The Torch' ligularia for a lot of yellow at the same time. I added in some Jack Frost brunnera and I think a reddish astilbe last season so we'll see if that evens it out a bit.

And, yes, that is the ol' Singer I learned to sew on. It sat in the closet gathering dust until I decided to enjoy it's last hoorah in the medicinal portion of my herbs. I quite like it there, its surrounded by knitbone, boneset, and arnica.

Thanks for the information Bonehead, love that old sewing machine. Hope you have better luck with the Astible. I had a row of white down the side of the house between the Hostas but the plants were pretty big by the time they bloomed and the blooms only lasted a week. They had to go, not much sun or water over on that side.

Green Grin! ..Spring,.love those Iris! Would you believe I planted 30 this year? Hope they do well. Thumbs up
