Playing "Catch up "  Do any of you remember when that box bush in the middle (under the flowers) was replaced by a larger dying boxwood? and I thought it would never "catch up" ?  Cecil decided at that time to trim the old bushes down and give them new life . ..Well , at the time I agreed ..but I was devastated when I saw how short he cut them down and I thought..I'll have to think of something else to replace them..Time and more time they began to grow and now they have out shined even the New replacement :o). The new grown one is the deep green on the right :o)
You can barely see the Boxwoods on the left  (I didn't take a good picture :o(  but if you look closely on the ground you can see them they look small here but they are as tall as the first picture, and I'm happy about how well they have grown and are still growing ...we will now make sure to  keep them below the window boxes. Cecil is leaving me enough space in front of them for my Alyssum, they grew on one side and not the other :o( Spring I'll try again or do some transplanting..

Glad to hear that everything is catching up. Sometimes plants trick ya into thinking they are dead and then viola they come out all nice...but sometimes they are just dead..lol
