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.
Are you a fan of white gardens or do you prefer more vibrant blooms? Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your day!
