Emerging from the snow

Look what finally gets to see the light of day.


This little boxwood ('Green velvet' I think) is such a trooper. When I planted it near the corner of the garden I never realized that it would be buried by snow plowed from the driveway every winter, but it is. How it manages to retain any shape at all I don't know, but it doesn't look much worse for the wear now that is finally being allowed to see the light of day.


  1. We have boxwoods in the same situation with lots of driveway snow on them and we've only had minor damage — even with the records snows we've been having the last few winters.

  2. 'Green Velvet' is on my list of shrubs to buy this year so it's nice to see that you've had good luck with yours. Such a prefect little looking evergreen!
