Today's Flowers

Two weeks ago, I brought some forsythia branches indoors

so they could bloom earlier than the ones outside.

They are starting to bloom now.

I took the vase outside for a few minutes to photograph them in natural light.

Our forsythia bushes teased us for weeks with 2 blooms. It is now in full color - I love these!

PS is that snow sparkling in the background? I really like the effect!

Great idea! I love forsythia. The ones in the neighborhood (mine included) still don't have buds on them. I'm holding my breath they didn't freeze. Lovely shots, Judy!

Flower babies (buds) are like puppy babies. They are all adorable!

Thanks for stopping by my place.

How clever of you to force a few branches! They are very pretty.

I do this each spring too, in anticipation of earlier blooms. Others to do are cherry, honeysuckle, even lilac and apple...it's a bit early here yet, but can't wait. Thanks for sharing your lovely blooms
