White Wednesday

This Wednesday I'm joining Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage for White Wednesday. I love the look of white indoors and out. This angel you may be saying is not exactly white.'s actually an aged moss finish. But use your was once actually white before it developed it's patina. Isn't that what we all look for...a little age, a little history to give our objects some interest.

Now we turn to the truly white flowers of the hydrangea paniculata. What I really love about this one opposed to the grandifolia or P.G. is the airiness of the cone. Delicate and in mass will take your breath away.

The purity of this single white blossom captivate your imagination

to allow it to see the beauty of the contours

contrasting with the deepness of natures green hue.

We now come inside where we explore nature

with reverence

to Space and Time.

Go here to visit other

participants of

White Wednesday.

Enjoy your day!!!!

Hi Carole, love the pictures...I am wondering, what is the plant in the 4th picture? It looks like a white verbena bonariensis? so airy. I have never seen a white one? I love it...

Hi there Carole....I want your beautiful angel for my garden...Don't you just love it when it goes all green and mossy...I expect that you know this but to get the lichen and moss to grow quickly on a new stone statue you have to put live yoghurt on , it's true and it works...also, my hydrangea is out and it's one of my favourite plants,,, I have two in my garden ...Oh and do you know if I can get the Jeanne D'arc magazine in the U.K.?...super post.

Hello Carole

White hydrangeas are so beautiful. I have a couple growing in pots. We have had such odd weather for summer that they haven't been too well. Far too much rain of late. I can't wait to see them in full bloom!
Take care
