Ahhh, mid-February. How I hate you so.
This is about the time when I become slightly unhinged. There won't be leaves on the trees for another 3 months. And there's only so much white one brain can handle in any given day. And right now, the view in every direction is white. So I latched on to the White Flower Farm catalog pretty hard when it arrived last week. Here are my "in my dreams!" picks:
This "Dawn and Dusk" duo: Clematis and climbing roses. So English country sweet! I don't deserve such a pretty floral display.
Flowering Quince: siiiiiigggghhhh.
Smokebush: there's something about this that reminds me of Elaine dancing on Seinfeld. In a good way.
A man-eating Hosta! Does it come with a large stick for measuring?
And the flower of my dreams, Hellebores. Thank you, Martha Stewart, for yet another flower obsession.
