GBBD: Musing on White
Whilst looking around for Blooms Day this month, I've be struck by how I've been choosing the colour white for many of my new plants for my garden without realising it. I've already introduced you to one of them for my Muse Day and elsewhere I can see white Osteospermum and Impatiens bedded down in their summer planters. A new Trachelospermum jaminoides is just beginning to show its scented blooms and as you can see from the above photo I've had a marvellous display of Philadelphus 'Virginal' this year. It's the first time it's really bloomed properly since I planted it 9 years ago and I believe that's down to a combination of our harsher winter (everything seems to have gone bloom-ing crazy since then) and my mental note to remove it and plant something a bit more interesting last spring.
Having pondered and mused a little on this need for white, I believe it's my subconscious telling me to calm down and chill out more as real life has been rather hectic so far this year. Having realised this, I'll be trying to follow my brain's advice a bit better from now on...
