Forced Forsythia

The lingering cold of winter has put off the cascade of awakening plants and flowers here in SE PA.

Forcythia

 

Yet there is hope, as it has been happening ever so slowly this year.

 

The forsythia in our yard has more yellow in its branches.

 

No bright yellow yet on my travels around the area, but I would not be surprised if they appear on the landscape very soon.

 

In my impatience for this cascade of yellow to appear, I trimmed a few branches and put them in a vase in water in a bright sunny spot. Warmed in the sun. They are slowly beginning to put on their show, indoors!
