Looks like my neighbor has the same idea...hope she doesn't think I'm a copycat. Looks like she's going more spiral, and I think I like the round or "teardrop" shaped boxwoods.
I'd like to do some succulents out back...the hen and chicks remind me of my Nanny and Papaw's house, and I have a few that I took from there a long time ago that I think are still hanging in there in a pot on my side porch. We're supposed to reach 70+ degrees tomorrow, so maybe I'll start by trimming the dead branches from what I've already got and see what green I've got left to work with after such a cold and snowy winter. Or is it too early to do that?
