I once visited the famous white garden at Sissinghurst Castle  It was planted by Vita Sackville-West with a variety of flowers and foliage using a colour scheme of white, grey and silver. In this garden the shape, size and structure of the plants becomes the focus, rather than their colour. When Lou chose white as this week’s theme for Nature in the Home I was reminded of Sissinghurst. Although my own garden is anything but monochromatic, I managed to find a small selection of white flowers and decided to photograph them in the style of Caroline’s beautiful mood boards. There is something so very lovely about the simplicity of these pale blooms.

    Beautiful images – I went to Sissinghurst after a friends wedding a few years ago and it just happened to be the perfect time to visit the white garden – mid June I think and it was amazing. Are those pea flowers!? I’m thinking we might just get the first pods of peas here in the next few days… can’t wait.
