It’s no secret that I favor white blooms. There’s something about the clean contrast between pale blooms and the deep northwest evergreens that appeals to me. This month has been filled with some lovely white flowers at Coppertop. This lush clematis grows on the black arches alongside hops, hardy kiwi, akebia, and other climbing neighbors.
Views of the beauty at other times of day:
This week our rosa rugosa has begun to bloom in the center of the perennial beds. I can’t pass by without leaning in to inhale the sweet freshness.
My favorite white lilac bush is now joined by lupines and irises. We call this Lupine Hill for a reason!
On practically the opposite end of the gardens, marionberry vines on their long trellis are in bloom. These white flowers promise another sweet and juicy summer harvest.
