Spring Fling

BSpring is finally here! Everything in Atlanta is going green—Spring green. This is the time of year when I can’t wait to get outside and get my hands dirty. On one such beautiful day I made a shopping therapy trip to my favorite ‘happy place,’ Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts. They were jam-packed full of Spring goodies. I found two wonderful topiary lilac trees that are going to live in the North Carolina mountains—more on those later. I’m including some visuals in case any of you need shopping therapy, too.

Now go on out there and get your hands dirty with a little shopping therapy!

      Lilacs are looking for a good space to avoid a late frost.
