Forcing The Issue

Ready to bring a little green and sunshine into your winter? Just use some garden objects and bring the outdoors in. With a couple of terracotta pots and some greenery cut from shrubs or store-bought ferns, a dreary winter landscape can turn as warm as a summer day. Gardening books with pictures of lush flower beds can remind us of what to look forward to.

Use the garden statuary that's taken on an aged patina to add interest to a vignette.

Try some clipped boxwood or ivy in a small vase under a bell jar. Voila! Dreary just became delightful.

Hey Willy

Pretty pictures, funny video, but I like to think I am not a 'geek'. I am trying this blogging thing, check it out and let me know what you think. How do I put links up there.

Love these 'springy'- a little green would definitely perk us up with the cold weather outside!!!
