Boxwood Love

I am so loving boxwood right now. I have them all over my back patio.
I have planted them in big black shiny urns, and pots.

My kids say they remind them of one of our favorite movies,
 Remember when he turns the little neighborhood into a land of fantastic topiaries...
hmmm?
now there's an idea!

The little heart is the perfect touch! We have a boxwood hedge...they always look great, don't they? No fuss except for trimming.

I love, love, love this! The beautiful simplicity of it is absolutely wonderful :)

I love the Madeline's picnic game (It is spooky how "on the same page" we are at the moment - you'll see what I mean later this week! hee hee)

I can't wait to see what else you have brewing for your client, because the tooth is adorable :)

It is always a bright spot in my day to visit you, dear friend.

I love boxwoods too. I used to have them all around the yard in my old house. I guess I need to move all the azaleas in my present house and plant some boxwood!!! Topiaries...what a fantastic idea. :-)

Love the painting. I also love boxwood. I discovered mine had died however and I really don't know why it was at least 12 years old.
