For the last few days I have been dreaming of white and green gardens. There’s something so calming and sophisticated about the coolness of white flowers teemed with different textures of green foliage.
I love the thought of big terracotta pots filled with rosemary and thyme, flower beds filled with pale astrantias and lime green hydrangeas.
Maybe… I am actually just longing for a holiday and am having visions of a tuscan townhouse garden! This, I think, is quite a possibility.
While in my recent reverie, I spent time looking around the Finca’s garden and realised that it is giving off quite a lot of the green/white vibe. I expect my subconscious was directing me when I was planting earlier in the year.
I also had a bit of a surprise when it came to my ‘Black Knight’ Buddleia (a beautiful variety with deep purple flowers)…
As the flowers started to emerge I was so eager to see them in all their purply lusciousness.
‘They’re a bit pale,” I thought to myself. “I expect they darken as they mature.” I concluded.
Errr… no, that didn’t end up being the case.
Instead of the Black Knight purple wonder that I ordered. I instead have a white buddleia (as you can see above).
As it happens, I am totally in love with it and it matches my need for all things green and white. Bazinga!
Have a great day x
