Quick and Simple February Greenery

Gathered clippers, an Armstrong Cheese Box, two small zinc flower pots and a few cuttings from the old boxwood shrub beside my deck.



I saw a photo on The Cedar Shake Cape (boxwood in a plant pot, zinc pot with a burlap flower) that gave me the idea to cut some boxwood, bring my zinc plant pots inside, used an Armstrong cheese box for a tray (found in my Dad's shed when I was cleaning it out Friday) and a rooster and hen green salt and pepper (from my Mom's collection). Small treasures.



I also tried a quick bit of February Greenery for the black magazine table. I dry-potted the boxwood. My boxwood Christmas wreath still holds its colour so I didn't worry about the boxwood branches in the pots.



and used one bunch of boxwood in a vignette in my small portable lightbox.

  5. A versatile pot of boxwood branches for a touch of green, accompanied by the green rooster and hen.
    Did you put the branches in oasis or just water Joy?

  7. A very charming vignette, Joy. Even though it may be bitter cold outside, having some pretty greenery inside, makes if feel like spring.

  15. Great inspiration Joy! I worked in the garden today and my boxwood is all pretty and green. Usually quite yellow at this time of year. I have two of those exact pots. May need to bring some inside. Can I just tell you that I am drooling over the S&P shakers. Love that shade of green!
    Thanks for sharing with SYC.
