Macro Flowers Saturday

I brought some forsythia branches inside last week, and they have started to bloom.
 I have done it for years, but the cheery yellow blossoms never fail to amaze me.

Hi Judy!
Thanks for visiting. I live in a tropical island which is practically sunny year round which is why flowers bloom all year round as well! ;-)

Btw, your link does not go to your MFS post. Maia is right in insisting on this because it helps those of us with slow PCs. ;-(

Btw, I love your macros today. First time I saw something like it!

Forsythia blossoms always signify Spring to me, even if they are inside the house. These are wonderful macros.

Nice job really observing the details of the forsythia! Thanks for your kind words over on my blog....have a great week!

Cheerful spring flowers, they bring spring atmosphere in the house when outside is still snowing.

I had to reintroduce your link, for some reason it didn't work.

Lorac said...

Certainly looks spring like! I will have to try this.

I swore I was going to do the same thing but haven't. Lovely, Judy!

Carletta said...

Thank you once again for the reminder! Two years ago it was from reading your blog that I first did this. I must go check mine tomorrow.
You forced your own sweet touch of spring!

As for my roses, the roses really were two toned with red and an almost pink stripe.

Ah, spring cannot be far away. Can it?

Johnny Nutcase said...

Growing up, I loved forsythia in early spring/late winter. Not sure I've ever seen it here, though. Thanks for the memory!
