The White Garden in Spring

 From the front sidewalk you can see the entrance to the White Garden. There are glimpses of it, but it is a secret little place tucked away from most of those who pass by in a hurry.
 A closer view from the yard.
 Climatis Henryii has really come into its own this year. Cannot get that pillar to stand tall.
 Here is the view from inside the White Garden looking back across the yard and sidewalk into the park across the street.
 Beside the clematis are the first blooms of the white peony and behind that is the white camellia japonica "man size" which did not bloom this past year.

Driveway bed in bloom

 Sunny Knock-Out roses are beginning to bloom and brighten up the dreary driveway area.
 Various shades of lemon yellow fading to lemon ice and then white.
 Fresh young yellow bud.
 Guara is just getting started too. Close up below.

 Wife's grandfather's rose blooming near wall.
 Planters are loaded and ready to begin the summer cascade.
Another blurry shot showing the wall and the driveway behind it.
