March Flowers: Forsythia

It's March 1 and that means it's time for Flowers on First! This month I forced some Forsythia branches from my yard. Any type of flowering branches can be cut and placed in water indoors for early blooming to enjoy a glimpse of what's to come.

It looks like we still have a ways to go until spring comes to Connecticut, so a bit of springtime was a welcome addition to our home.

It took about 10 days to go from bare branches to yellow blossoms...I photographed every few days to capture the progress.
