seems like it wasn't too long ago that i was covering these guys up, but on Sunday i allowed my wishful thinking (if you uncover them, Spring will surely arrive) to get the best of me. the forecast only had two chances of snow-and supposedly it snowed this morning, though i didn't see it-and then warmer temperatures. plus the burlap seemed full...like maybe the little guys were growing a bit?
|safe at last from the drying winter winds, and branch breaking snow, it was time to let the sun shine on the little boxwoods.|
|the biggest guy was first, since he seemed to be breaking out of the burlap.|
|look! i left the tag on!|
|i need to gather those tags up, since this guy is different from the others, and may be English boxwood. the leaves are smaller and.....|
|he has little flowers.|
|the next biggest at the far end of the Border. one dead branch, but seems like he survived the winter.|
|this guy was the most sick of the four, and had a large section cut out before he was planted. hoping for the best, although there is still some dead material in there.|
