Things We Love: White Gardens

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having an amazing Monday. I had a full long weekend of good, old- fashioned girls’ fun with three of my best ever friends.

My husband joked that it was our twenty-ninth preschool reunion. And it kind of was.

We do it every year, get together for a few days. It has become more difficult as marriages have happened and babies have been born, but we always find a way to work it all out and reconnect.  Because some things are absolutely too good to let go of.

We tell new stories and, of course, the same old ones. Because some things are classics.

One of those classics? White gardens

They are the little black dress of gardens, simple, chic and always in style.

They go with any home exterior, in any climate.  And just a touch of beauitful white blooms–like these hydrangeas–goes a long way.

A pea gravel path is a lovely accessory.

And as gorgeous as they look in full bloom in Spring, they are stunning in all green as well.

Because white gardens, like the best friendships, are perfect in any season.

Things We Love: A Gorgeous White Garden

It is summer and that means time for gardens galore! Sitting in them, admiring them… We love all of that!

The planting and keeping alive is where things get dicey. Fortunately, hardy favorites like these gorgeous hydrangeas are stunning and well within our wheelhouse.

We don’t know about you, but we love beautiful blooms that we can cut and move into our own house. It’s such an easy and chic touch.

We love so many different kinds of gardens, from the streamlined to the very, very complicated.

A fabulous patio is one of the best parts of spring. But, without a luscious view, porch sitting can fall flat. That’s certainly not a problem for any of these lovely landscapes!

This beautiful yard reminds us of a perfectly tailored pair of black pants. They fit so well that they can’t help but be gorgeous.
