Boxwood Love


I don't know about you but we are all saying that we are ready for some spring weather and some spring color! 
Nothing brightens up a home better than something living....



However, this time of year it's hard to find something truly living...





So we have just the thing for you to tide yourself over until all of the daffodils, tulips, etc...are in full bloom! Preserved Boxwood Balls! They are so easy to keep and add just enough touch of a living, breathing plant to any room!


Talk about easy to decorate with! Just fill up an antique wooden dough bowl with some that vary in size!


Or simply in mercury votives....


Or even alone on a chest.



However you choose to use them, preserved Boxwood Balls will definitely give you that boost you need until all of the spring colors in our gardens are in full bloom!


I'm loving these Boxwood Balls in this vintage urn!


 And we've had these Boxwoods that come in their own pots for sale for years! In fact, I think it's time to order some more! It sure makes for easy decorating on hard to reach shelves!


There's nothing prettier than beautiful boxwoods in your landscaping!


 And a formal English garden look is so wonderful!



 My favorite at home is to put them in planters like this around our pool or on the front porch.


However you plan to use your boxwoods let them tide you over until everything is in full bloom!



 And then by all means, enjoy those beautiful tulips and daffodils! I personally can't wait for them!

  3. I love these examples, especially the gardens. Perfectly rounded boxwoods are so sculptural in a garden.

  5. Oh my the boxwoods are all fabulous, but the tulips are absolutely stunning. I live near a rose farm and the colors there are just as fantastic. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
