Forsythia Says Spring is Here

March 20, 2012

It’s the first day of Spring!

And boy, is it spring!!

The pretty yellow flowers of the forsythia came to full bloom this past weekend.  This cheerful bloomer is one of the first signs to signal spring is here and can be a great reminder that it’s time to start meddling in the garden.

I pruned roses and hydrangeas this weekend.  It’s quite obvious from the many thorn scratches that this is the first time I’ve pruned roses while wearing shorts.  Ouch.

Last year this same forsythia wasn’t blooming until the second week of April…so we are about 4 weeks ahead from 2011.

I’m fairly certain this is the earliest this shrub has bloomed in the six years I’ve been at my house.  No complaining here though.

Yay it’s here!

Happy Spring!
