Whites in the Garden for White Wednesday @Faded Charm

Just last week it was 113 degrees here in Santa Rosa Valley. Last night it poured RAIN all night and it is in the low 60's. Everything looks so CRISP and FRESH and the air smells CLEAN. Here are some Whites in the Garden after a night of rain. All of my French Lavabo's are getting ready for Chrismas plants, White Cyclamen and Ivy!
All of my Iceberg Roses are still blooming and are always fresh looking. Please click on the link to visit Kathleen's Faded Charm "our" host of White Wednesday. Thank you Kathleen! kathleen's Faded Charm.

I love all the history and layers and layers of chippy paint!  I use these French Lavabo's  inside and out.  I especially love them under windows.

On the fence, on the walls,  under the windows, inside and out!

I bought this planter from one of my favorite dealers Cheryl at Cherylsfascinatingfinds I love the big cabbage roses adorning the sides!  As Cheryl pointed out..I have a PAIR of them...even more AMAZING..she is right!

An Ebay find!  I love to move this piece all around...even in the house!  I love pieces like these....harder and harder to find!

One of my Favorite CAST Iron Urns....Always pretty surrounded by ROSES, and filled with Lavender and Ivy.  Love that it is rusting so beautifully!
And last but not least..A great Rose Bowl find!  A pair!  All chippy and weathered!  I hope you enjoyed visiting my White Wednesday Garden......Now go visit Kathleen!  Have a HAPPY  Wednesday..:) xokathee
