Further Evidence...






A close-up of a weeping cherry tree in my daughter's
yard.














Bradford Pear trees outside my local K-Mart. These trees are in bloom all over our area now, along with flowering cherries and plums. Spring has sprung...









A branch of forsythia, reaching skyward. Is there any better harbinger of spring? Cutting a few small branches and bringing them in the house to bloom is a ritual here. Nothing brightens up a winter-weary home better than this!!




One of my three forsythia bushes. They reach peak bloom about 10 days apart, owing to their positions in the yard. This one was pruned severely last summer, so I am surprised that it has so many blooms on it now.

I wish I could grow forsythia in Louisiana, but it gets to hot. We don't have anything that big in yellow. Very nice. Your trees are beautiful. I had a woodzy yard like that once but 140mph winds for 12 hours took them to heaven.

Yellow flowers in a house is bliss.

Our Bradfords and Forsythia are going crazy around here also. Yesterday, I saw some Dogwood, deep in the National Forest blooming. It sure is comeing.

Your forsythia photos remind me of when I was growing up in New Jersey in the late '50s. That yellow bloom was always the very first sign of spring. It's a beauty.

Pat said...

You are definitely ahead of us.

We have lots of pink blossoms around the city this time of year. Really colorful and cheery. :)
