Forsythia

What is your favorite part of spring?  Mine would have to be watching the new blooms open.  The fresh color and the new green foliage unfolding is a definite treat.  Something I do every year is bring branches of forsythia into our home…

I bring in several branches and begin choosing the ones to fill the vase for the kitchen.  Nice scrub brush…real world!

Their branches are so architectural!

Trim off any blooms at the bottom of the branches to avoid blooms being in the water!

Begin arranging!  There is no wrong way…if you love it then it works!  Create smaller bouquets in bud vases and display them around your home!

And as I mentioned, watching the blooms unfold is my favorite part of spring!  What is your favorite part of spring?

If you don’t have Forsythia in your yard, ask your neighbors, I’m sure they’ll share!

Enjoy the day!
