I didn't realize how many white flowers I had int he garden until I went out to photograph them today.
The mock orange, Philadelphus sp Natchez is putting on the biggest white show.
Followed by the Anacacho orchid tree, Bauhinia lunariodes.
There's even a single rain lily, Cooperia drummondii, coaxed into blooming by the recent rains.
In the English garden the white knockout rose puts on her first full flush of blooms.
The native blackfoot daisy, Melampodium leucanthum.
Love-in-a-mist, Nigella sativa, with the spiky foliage. A faithful spring returner.
A single white Shirley poppy.
The multiplying onions, Allium sepa, making a great stand. I think I may mix them in with my other garden flowers next year.
The potatoes are flowering.
And the snow pea flowers mean lots of peas over the next few weeks. I always plant Pisum sativum 'Cascadia' because they are open pollinated and I can save the seeds for next year.
The first pods.
And the tiny star flowered sedum, Sedum potosinum.
