The Datura that bloomed last night is in the white bed. I planted it in the back corner where I had originally thought I would install a deck or patio for an outdoor seating area. This winter, I'll be moving most of the plants here to a better location. I may leave some, but the white theme will be discontinued here. The new location is the lowest point in the yard, near the magnolia tree. It receives more morning sun and late evening sun. It's also where I plan to build my firepit from leftover stone and bricks. I've got to get busy on that this fall.
The white bed looking East.
Store bought petunias line the edge.
Nicotiana and asiatic lilies.
Loads of datura inhabit this space. There are more nicotiana and castor beans along the wall and fence. White gerber daisies aren't really white. Shastas will bloom next year. Scabiosa is just starting to bloom. A daisy gardenia is at the corner of the house. Ginger lilies will provide summer scent and compete with the datura and brugmansia for attention.
It's 70 degrees and overcast. Rain is likely this afternoon, and I'm not going to complain. I watered the entire perennial bed yesterday for the first time all year. Reseeders from Carrie were planted throughout.
