Forsythia Blooms

I am ready for Spring.  We have suddenly shifted into 60 degree days.  The sun is finally shining again.  And my coat has yet to leave the coat closet this week.


While the blooms haven't emerged outside yet, they have inside.  Two weeks ago I clipped some forsythia branches from my yard and followed BHG's great tutorial on forcing branches.  My reward... beautiful blossoms that make me smile, even when I was sick last weekend.



If you haven't tried this yet, I recommend it.  It is a great way to get through this transition period.
  

Has Spring come to your area this week?

forsythia is my favorite... my parents have them and as soon as i see the buds i know that it is finally spring!

i never did though... but i should... once i finally figure out which shrub in my yard is forsythia... i know one of them is (we bought the house in winter) LOL

I'm with you. I love seeing their early flowers in Spring. That might be why I equate Spring with Yellow.
