Forcing Spring

The cold of February was finially getting to me. I long for the warmth and color of spring. Thankfully some plants are able to be tricked into blooming this time of year. About a week ago or so I gut a few branches from my forsythia bush in the yard. I put the branches into some water and waited.

It reminds me of Easter at Grandma's, as she always decorated the table with a few short forsythia branches on the table. Hopefully it won't be long before it is warm enough for them to open outside on their own!


  1. what other plants do this? maybe I'll just go cut a bunch of sticks in the yard and find out :P
