Spring Forsythia

posted on

Don't you love Forsythia? That neon yellow flowering shrub is everywhere right now.  Since we're not lucky enough to have in our yard, the above bunch was $20 at San Francisco's Flower Market.  It's a good value if you buy when the buds are tight - it should last a good month.
Forsythia has been everywhere in our house including the sun room.
Another year, this bouquet was in our entry way.  When it's gray outside, it's almost like a blast  of sunshine welcoming you inside.
That is, until this year.  All of a sudden, I'm allergic.  Plan B - artificial stocks of Forsythia from Michael's, that's $20 worth you're looking at.  Not exactly the impact of a huge bouquet; but on the bright side, clean up is much easier.  Enjoy the first days of March.

  • I love the look of bright yellow against a light colored background and forsythia makes a beautiful and inexpensive splash during spring. Have you ever tried dogwood as an alternative? I can remember clipping the beautiful red, pink and white flowers on their long branches and using them all over the house – cheery blossoms may work too!
