It all started with white bluebells

So you all know about my love for bluebells…well…the other day I found some white bluebells growing on the side of mom’s house and mom happily let me dig a few for my garden.

Don’t they look lovely in the last of the evening sunlight?

I thought the white bluebells deserved a lovely spot in the perennial border at the front of the house.

Morgan likes to be very close to me all the time and chose to watch me from the round bottomed pot under the noble privet.

It took several hours of edging but the front flower bed looks great and my special white bluebells will shine there.

  1. Ohh they will be gorgeous – I’d not seen the white ones – only pink and blue.

      JoAnn, they will divide this year and next spring I might be able to smuggle a few down across the border…lol. It’ll be a covert operation. (we’ll need a password and a secret handshake) :)

  2. How beautiful! They will really light up your border. :-)

    • Veronica says:

      I think they will Cathy. I have about ten beautiful fat bulbs from mom so I’m really excited for next spring. :)

    Gorgeous gardens! I didn’t know there was such a thing as white bluebells. The whole name is an oxymoron! We are living in a house that we built and I haven’t been able to do the yard yet. Yours inspires!

    • Veronica says:

      Kristen, that’s a wonderful idea. Especially if there are clumps and clumps of them and they aren’t protected. You know, I love gardens which have indigenous plants. I have a cabin in the Lillooet district where it’s too dry to plant botanicals and so I encourage the dog roses and saskatoons and all sorts of drought tolerant wild flowers to grow and bloom their little hearts out. :)

    Forgot to mention that we get the most tremendous wild bluebells here, huge clumps of them. Never thought to dig them up and put them in my garden, but I now plan to do so!

  5. Gardening my fave…just heading out to plant right now. It all looks gorgeous V.

  6. Wow, Veronica, you really are a Master Gardener. Your flower garden is beautiful. Congratulations on the white bluebells.

  7. The white bluebells ( seems contradictory doesn’t it ? ) are beautiful and will give a very nice contrast to a beloved flower. Your flower bed is very attractive and appealing, and why would it not be ? Morgan helped out by supervising !

      Hi Kathy B. I know, it’s like an oxymoron. :) Thank you very much, I’ve only had it for a couple of springs but it’s coming along. Morgan is a great supervisor, I’m a lucky girl. :)

  8. Love your potted cat:-)

  9. beautiful! My kitty likes to ‘help’ me garden as well. Especially when I plant catnip!

    • Veronica says:

      Oh no Jennifer…lol. I grew catnip one year and the cats ignored it green but went crazy for it dried. What’s all that about? :)

  10. Yes they do, you must eat a lot of Kiwi?

  11. Whte bluebells – well, I’ve never seen any of those! Delightful :)
