Moon Garden

What is a moon garden? A moon garden contains white flowers and silvery foliage that seem to sparkle and reflect light. I wanted to keep things simple this spring so I've planted an all white garden this year, although everything is still pretty small and wimpy. Until I'm able to share photos of my own moon garden, here are some inspiration photos from my file:

Sarah- This is one of those things that photographs couldn't capture - I always see the photographs of the moon gardens in daylight!

I can imagine you have to indulge all your senses in person, at night, under a full moon, with the quiet sounds of night around you. Lucky you!
