My Alpine Home

We have lived in our home in Alpine, Utah for five years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Twilight White


Tonight after mowing the lawn, and just before going inside for the evening I snapped a few pics of the whites in my garden.

Yes, can you believe I love to mow the lawn?  Just something about that smell of fresh cut grass.

My hubby was finishing the brick border on our new patio.

I usually mow during the day when he is at work.

Now, back to the whites.

No garden would be complete without them.


This was the first bloom to open on my white poppies.  Earlier today I squealed like a little girly when I said to my hubby, “look, my first bloom!”  I just planted them last Fall so I was so excited to see it!  There are lots of buds, so many more to delight.


Another picture with my small daisies in the background.  I have large Shasta daisies, but they aren’t blooming quite yet.

Even the moss by our waterfall is giving a show of tiny white flowers.


I love the white tips of my Tri-Color Willow bush.  Transplanted from a friends garden.  She decided it got too large for her area.


Variegated Zebra Grass.

I have a couple of trees that still have a few white blooms hanging around for just a bit.

Last of all, a piece or two of white garden accents.

016This sweet little bench once belonged to my Mother.  She brought it home from Mexico years ago.  She would be happy to see it in my garden. 

My tin washtub filled with pansies use to reside upon a pole.  Now it’s found a new home upon my mothers bench.

I hope you find some delight in my white!
