A Living Flower Arrangement | The Gray Boxwood

I am always so excited to start spring work! Living in Iowa means winter is long and cold, this year’s polar vortex being no exception. Nothing drowns the winter blues like flowers. The colors just give my heart a calming warmth when I can see them by the back door from my kitchen window.

Pansies are the earliest flower we can plant as they are fairly cold-hardy and I chose to make a a gorgeous and simple living flower arrangement with some this year. The arrangements can be brought in over Easter and dressed up with moss and eggs or kept outside all season long. And with Earth Day coming up on April 22, this would be a perfect arrangement to get outdoors and celebrate nature!

Outdoors and indoors, this is nature at its best!
