White Wednesday


For this weeks "White Wednesday" post, I decided to sneak out back yesterday during our busy three day sale and take some pictures of our "winter whites" that are in our Johnnye Merle Gardens & Nursery! Don't let the sunshine fool you. It has been cold here for us, and I'm not handling it well. The statue above was placed in our flower beds we first created at Country Roads back in 1993! It always warms my heart, even on cold days, when I see "her" still in the garden after all these years! Here are a few more of my favorite "winter whites" I hope you will enjoy!














This year Johnnye Merle's has been growing their own plants which I absolutely love. They have now reached a point that we have them for sale and our sweet peas (one of my personal favorites) are just waiting to go home and thrive in your gardens. I hope you all make it a point to stop by Kathleen's blog and see not only how beautiful her blog is, but all the many other blogs that are featured for this "White Wednesday"! And for those of you that live where it truly is cold, just remember Spring is just around the corner!!

Oh, Sue, I was so impressed with your garden area a Country Roads when I was there last year and it looks better than ever. That sunshine looks so inviting as I look out the window to see snow falling. I sure hope Spring gets here quickly!

Take sometime out of your busy schedule to enjoy that garden.
