Napoleon's White Garden

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
You may remember that I planted a white memorial garden for Napoleon last autumn. It is now beginning to look beautiful and I thought I would share a few pix. I found a little white cat statue for it, and I laid the paving to lead to his headstone. I have planted it so there will be a variety of white flowers and foliage all year round. The rose on the arch is a 'Virgo', pure white and there is a white jasmine on the other side. In one corner of the garden I have a white orange blossom and in the other a large white hydrangea. The next things to come out will be white iris and some late narcissus.

Here is a a general view of the rest of the garden, half planted.

And just so you can see I have been busy, here is Persil approving the new bathroom!

Go figure! I can see the picture of the garden but I can't see the picture of Persil. I'll have to check out this thread from home tonight.

A white garden memorial -- is that traditional? It's a beautiful idea, and the little statue makes it all the more poignant. Somewhere, Napoleon is smiling.

And that bath is so inviting! Even I might be able to slow down and relax there!

No, it's not traditional - just in memory of my white boy. I wanted to create a special spot that reminded me of him, but was calm and beautiful, a place to sit and think good thoughts. I am still looking for a white stone seat to place under the rose arch.
