Are any of these poisonous to dogs or cat? I have a 8 month old golden and an outdoor cat who likes to drink the water off of the plants

Victorian. Charming in the daytime and magical at night, this white garden is full to bursting with blooms. Choose traditional white furnishings in iron, wood or wicker to add to the theme.Whether you are gilding the lily of a classic trimmed estate or starting a country garden from scratch, consider the impact white blooms can have on your space. Create an all-white garden, add a few white bloomers around curves, or line paths that night travelers will be taking.Tell us: Do you have white blooms in your garden now? Show them off below!See more great design flowers and plantsMore:What to Do in Your Garden This Month
11. Metal outdoor furniture. Vintage café tables, chairs and benches that have seen years of use develop a patina that only enhances their character. Scoop some up to furnish your garden, patio or porch. And what if you see something you love that has a bit too much patina? You can always revamp it with a coat of outdoor metal paint, like Rust-Oleum — just be sure to talk the vendor down a bit for your trouble.

Embrace sentimentality by alluding to a bygone era. There is arguably no period in history that conjures up feelings of romance like the Victorian era. Incorporating a few lacy, frilly accent pieces is a sure way to spark that romantic spirit.
The romantic. The romantic gardener embraces sentimentality, enjoys thoughtful surprises, and knows that simple fragrances and sounds conjure sensual memories from the past. He or she will have a private garden, most likely with serpentine pathways partially obscuring small seating areas with room for two. White flowers, fragrant roses and candles are likely to be found here. This gardener sees the world through rose-colored glasses and enjoys the view.More about “romantic” gardeners
