I ordered some things online and last night the first shipment came in and I went out there and put them in. I got a small hosta with white flowers, Achillea Angel's Breath (a plant that looks like baby's breath), and Achillea Ballerina (flowers that look like white carnations). Still coming is a white rosebush, white phlox, a white clematis, and white tulip bulbs. I know that it won't look like much now, but next year things will come up nicely.
I had the white ceramic rabbit in another part of the garden and I thought he would look nice here among the white flowers when they come in. He belonged to my step-father and had sat in my house in a corner until last year when I brought him outside. The vertical slab standing in the corner is a brass rubbing of a knight that I found which to me reminded me of the white knight so I thought it fit. I can't wait until next spring when these flowers get established and the garden takes off. This is my new favorite spot in my garden and it is next to my bench, so morning coffee will be extra special next spring.
