We had lots fun with our company this holiday weekend (my aunt, uncle, cousin and her husband). Saturday, the “girls” (minus the baby) spent the day shopping in our little downtown, just outside of Charlotte. I brought my camera along so that I could give you a little tour as well.

I am slowly but surely trying to add some life to our breakfast area, and thought I would start by adding some live greenery. The sticks weren’t exactly saying “lively.”
I’ve never been big on house plants but I envisioned some type of topiary in this area. So, I bought this small flowering plant, already trimmed to a topiary, called “duranta” at a local nursery. I also added a small fern.
So far, so good. I added some moss and snapped this picture the day after I bought them.
The fern is still hanging on. . . .
And, I now have this dang water mark on the dresser where they were sitting.
I still haven’t given up on the idea of some type of topiary. So, for those of you with thumbs a little greener than my own, I’m asking for your suggestions. Any ideas of a good indoor plant that I could trim into a topiary?
