Winter White

“White…is not a mere absence of color; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black…God paints in many colors; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.”

—G. K. Chesterton

I bought these bulbs on a whim at OSH when I was scavenging for garden shears.

My narcissus are already coming up! So much for my complaining about my cutting garden…though I can’t bear to cut them—they’re just too gorgeous.

White succulents seem so Santa Barbara to me and add a bit  of winter white to the garden.
