True Colors Thursday - White

We keep seeing our friend BJ posting for True Colors Thursday and we broke down and had to play. We've missed it so much!

We've chosen the color white~

The Shirley Poppies are in bloom and mom is smiling pretty!


 This is our white Rugosa Rose.    We caught a bee coming in for a landing!
 Miss Autumn is standing on the white garden bench in front of a white birch tree~
 
 The Queen Anne's Lace is in bloom!
And so is the coneflower!
That was fun! We'll have to play again soon!

So until next time............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Gorgeous white indeed! The Queen Anne's Lace is my kind of flower! Your garden is always beautiful...

Thank you for dropping by! Life is getting busier for me now, that I don't get much time to play outdoor but I'm happy that your garden is offering delight thru the seasons. Hugs..

Woo Hoo! I'm glad you guys played along today. Funny thing, I almost picked white, but at the last minute went with lavender instead. Your white flowers are beautiful. Love the surprise of the bee coming in for a landing. Did you know that if you put Queen Anne's Lace in water colored with food coloring the flower changes to that color? Hubby' grandmother used to put red in hers. I haven't tried it yet, but sounds like fun.

Is Queen Anne's Lace a garden flower for you? Is it a native plant?

Over here, unfortunately, it is a weed. But I still think it is lovely and let some grow in my garden.
