I love to add evergreens to my window boxes and outdoor containers. It is so much nicer to look at during the long winter months. I tend to find a lot of stashed peanuts come Spring that always make me laugh – those Blue Jays! A lot of places charge you incredible prices for fresh Christmas greenery. If you have your own woods, you can cut your own. If you don’t, you can go to the public dump and make a haul like I did.

Symmetrical baskets leading from front porch steps.
I have left the Dusty Miller and some of the dried flowers –
they just looked “silvery” and in the spirit.

– they are still blooming!)
Even the shed gets a “window decking!”
