| The White Garden
Enclosed on three sides by brick walls and on the fourth side by a boxwood hedge, plants in this garden bloom white throughout the year, beginning with crocus, colchicum, and narcissus in the early spring. These are followed by tulips, azalea, kousa dogwoods, old fashioned snowballs, and fragrant viburnum as the season warms. “Bella,” resting on the wall of one of the raised planters, contemplates the garden. Daisies, peonies, oak leaf hydrangea, dahlias, butterfly bush, and crape myrtle follow, lasting until cool weather arrives. During winter, the crepe myrtles drop their leaves to reveal their handsome bark. The White Garden is presided over by Aurora, goddess of the dawn, facing eastward.
