Blooming Forsythia

Pin It

Last evening after checking the cows up at the farm, a flash a yellow caught my eye as I was walking back to my car. Could it be? Already?

This week we’ve seen unusually warm days with highs in the 80s, and a forsythia bush near the old cellar couldn’t wait any longer. I broke off some branches, took them home and put them in a vase.


Spring is officially here….

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Our lilac bushes have buds on them and the minature daffodils are in bloom. Can’t wait to see the forsythia. So pretty.

    Beautifull!!!!!!! I will trade someone purple irises for a lilac bush in bloom, please. I so miss the lilacs of Montana. It is too warm here in the desert, we never get a hard freeze, and I miss them so.

    I was worried about our Forsythia because in the fall we had such warm weather that it started to bloom in November. It is just loaded with blossoms now, so I guess I worried needlessly.

    Such a cheery yellow! We are a little behind here in WA State, but the early daffodils are blooming and the crocus. Just this week the wild plum tree started blooming, too. I am so happy for Spring! We had 6 inches of snow last week! xx

    It’s reached 81* three days in a row here in the Chicago area, and it’s gunning for a 4th today. Middle of March?? Chicago??? Crazeeeee!

  8. So pretty. Everything is blooming and coming alive here in Kansas.

  9. I just saw these for the first this season the other day. We have a lot growing along our local highway up on the hillsides. They are so beautiful!! I wish we had one in our yard!

      They are not hard to start from cuttings. Just trim a few branches and stick in water. They will grow roots and you’ll have bushes.

  10. What a nice welcome to spring, Suzanne. For Louisianans, it’s azaleas!
