HI everyone! It snowed this week in Denver! Can you believe it? We don’t complain about it in Colorado because we need the moisture. Do you have plans for Cinco de Mayo? We have plans for margaritas and tacos! Can’t wait! With a few rainy nights, I spent my evenings sorting thru
my crap I mean decor. The unfinished basement holds all the out of season accessories. And, my favorite basement finds were the collection of boxwood that was packed away during the holidays. Boxwood is a simple spring accessory.
A few years ago I discovered boxwood while on a trip to Knoxville to visit my sister and brother-in-law and four-legged nephew and niece. I am here to bring more boxwood to Colorado. It’s not as popular here as in the south.
If I understand the boxwood qualities; it’s alive (unless it’s plastic) and it just needs a spray bottle of water to keep it fresh. Does that sound right? Oh and check out the perfect water spray mister I found at Target.. in the dollar section.
After that whirlwind shopping blitz in Knoxville, I went a little overboard on my quest to find boxwood wreaths and accessories. I ended up going overboard with a great online store here (affiliate link). So with a few too many boxwood wreaths, my house I added boxwood to the spring decor. I love these petite, shades of green wreaths.
For a quick centerpiece idea for a small side table add boxwood and a candle.
I like to add boxwood to my smaller end tables that want a little love. End tables have valuable real estate.
Boxwood is an easy way to bulk up a mini boxwood wreath and still look cute. Mini boxwood are great for small spaces, tiny apartments and for daughters who don’t have time to water plants but would benefit from a little greenery in their tiny, Denver apartment! wink
And, my favorite boxwood idea happened just before a party. I was rushing around collecting my wayward accessories and grabbed the English market basket. In the manic cleanup, I tossed wayward boxwood wreaths intended for the basement.
And, the boxwood looked so good against the dark stain I put it on the dining room window sill and added a candle.
What do you love to do with boxwood? Is it popular where you live?
