Welcome to Boxwood Cottage!

So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

My blue garden table

Doves or pigeons?

I don't know how you call them, we say "Taube". I took these photos from my friends living room window on Easter sunday. It's a huge, old chestnut tree and it's almost as if she's living in that tree, because it's so close to her balcony


and a little blue tit

You also have a good view over the city of Aachen from her posh apartment and there was an Easter fair that looked beautiful at night through the branches of that tree

In remembrance of

my stolen stone statue "Caroline":

Garden News

Hello dear bloggingfriends!

After some more days of vacation I'm back at work today and back to a PC that really works well - I hope! I've missed you all and reading your blogs too, I have a lot to catch up with here in the office and of course in all your wonderful and inspiring blogs too! Thank you all very much for your kind words to my last post. I have the feeling that my bad luck is over now! *fingers crossed*


Friday was a fantastic garden day, the first day over 20 ° celsius /70° fahrenheit and I've been outside in my garden from dusk till dawn er I mean backwards from dawn till dusk, well at least almost lol and I enjoyed it so much!

This is my fave garden seat and friday was the first day I could use it again in this year:


From here I have a good look at these pink daisies and well all over my terrace and a part of my garden too

I'll take some new garden photos tomorrow when the promised sun will hopefully shine!

Hello I'm back

from my little trip since Tuesday and I had a really good time away (have made lots of photos too), but since I'm back here I've had a streak of bad luck. Firstly our PC broke and my daughter has kind of fixed it, but it's still crap because it kicks me out of the Internet everytime I'm trying to e-mail or post *rolls eyes* secondly my car was broke too but I got it fixed yesterday, but then I suddenly realised that my beautiful and beloved very heavy stone statue in the front garden has got stolen, inclusive the stone base/foot she stand on, while I was away. I'm really sad about this. I've had it for 10 years now and I'm missing it :(

Thank you all for your Easter wishes and nice comments on my last post. It was a pleasure to read!

On Monday it's back to normal for me, back to the office and a PC that hopefully works without any complications.

Until I can upload new pictures I have some more curls, scrolls and patterns from my house to post:















Wohoo it worked! I'm quite happy that at least I've managed a post with lots of pictures without getting kicked off again! :D

Happy Easter!


We'll of course I cant leave for my little holiday trip without saying good bye to you my dear blogging friends and neighbors.

I'm wishing you all a very happy and enjoyable Easter!





I'm terribly sorry

to what has happened with a part of my photos on this blog dear readers. I've stored them at Fotopic.net and today I've got an e-mail from them saying the following:

** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR FOTOPIC.NET ACCOUNT & GALLERIES ***We regret to inform you that your Fotopic account has been suspended due to the violation of our site policy below: Contrary to section 12b of our Terms and Conditions, your account is consuming excessive bandwidth to the extent of degrading the service for other users. This may be because you have linked to an extremely popular external site through our direct-linking facility, or you may have featured in a magazine or a website elsewhere.

I'm now in the process of trying to restore all the photos I've posted to imageshack and then I have to go in all my posts and repost the photos. That'll take some time and seeing that I'm going to leave on a holiday trip this afternoon I cannot fix them all until then, so I ask you to bear with me please until next week on Tuesday, when I'm back from my little trip to Cologne. Thank you!
