"The White Garden" spring

Last year I started my white garden named "Pure Enchantment."    I also wanted to plant a sister garden with black plants and call it "Ancient Enchantment."  The white one is coming along with some set backs.  I started the garden at the height of a drought.  I sort of lost my splurge plant a hydrangea tree.  It appeared to be dead so I took off the plastic that was around it and low and behold there was some life.  It will be a bush now so maybe I will move it.  My Rose of Sharron did not make it.  I have replaced it with a rose.  I planted a bunch of tulips and daffodils.  I planted them in the front.  I don't like them.  They are ugly once they are done blooming.  The daffodils were suppose to be white and most of them came up yellow.  All and all spring not being the best time of year for the garden, I'm happy with it.  As for Ancient Enchantment, I am just planting a bunch of stuff on the side of my house with the plan on moving it later.  It's not going to good.  I need to commit to it.  I have a crazy idea for it.  I like Mother Mary but my husband likes Santa Muerte.  He wants a shrine to her in the Ancient Enchantment garden.  I don't think its a good idea.  I admit it would look super cool and I have thought of dressing up like that for Halloween but at the very least, I think its bad karma and the worse demonistic.  Since I can't even seem to grow a dark flower, I am not going to over think it.  Maybe if I just get gargoyles he will forget about Santa Muerte.
You can see the dead hydrangea tree


I am thinking about moving the urn and planting something in the corner behind the viburnum.
I don't have this.  I wanted it so bad.  I went to a store called Old Time Pottery because it was in their add.  They only had 3 in the whole store and were long gone by the time I got there.  I hate when stores do this!

I have this one instead.  It was super cheap at Aldis.  I have it by the White Garden.  Not sure if it works.
