Today in the Garden: Spring's Purest Whites

At long last the peonies, which until now had been holding their buds so tightly, have opened. Here they are, in all their pink-tipped fragrance, with Baptisia Purple Smoke in the background.

Here they are with snow-in-summer, cerastium tomentosum, white and more white.

And here, more spring whites:  Artemisia Silver Brocade sprawling in front of Dianthus Tatra Fragrance.

More whites: St. Francis, under a white birch tree, brings grace to this corner of the yard, with its frosty hostas and snow white Lamium White Nancy.

Finally, today's bouquet:  peonies, baptisia, bleeding hearts, honeysuckle, ferns, hosta leaves.
