Forsythia is Blooming!

I'm embarrassed to say 
that I always forget 
that I have a Forsythia Bush 
on my side yard!  
The fact is, 
that it blooms so quickly 
that I sometimes miss it!  
Here it is today 
and it should fill out some more 
within the week.  
I always know that Spring is here 
when I see the Forsythia Blooming.  
You know that one of my most viewed 
and Googled posts was 
So, I cut a bunch of branches this afternoon 
(from the back of the bush) 
and wanted to put them on the dining room table.  
I just wanted a simple Spring arrangement.  
I first placed them in this green vase.  
I think it looks too Fall Like...
 I tried this rustic looking urn....  
I don't know, too rustic maybe?  
I have been so indecisive this week!  
Do you ever get like that?  
So I decided that maybe 
simple was best!
I stole the glass from one of my hurricane lanterns...
Yep, Simple is best!  

Happy Spring!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

I liked them both-the rustic urn and the clear glass container. I love forsythia! It just really says SPRING to me! xo Diana

Beautiful! If you leave it in water you will soon have roots and be able to start another plant!

I always love it when the forsythia bloom. It means that spring is finally here! My dad had a whole row of them planted along the drive way when I was growing up. I always loved them! I may have to go get one for myself now! Hugs, Leena

Forsythia just seems to scream spring. I have to say that I loved the green urn you had them in. I love green and yellow together, however I do like the clear vase as well. Have a wonderful weekend!

Simple works for me most of the time..You reminded me that I have to take my clippers down the street and "steal" some Pussy Willows..Have a great weekend Cindy..

Very, very pretty. I like them in all your vases, but simple is always a winner. Our forsynthia are still not blooming yet. Somewhat late from the cold winter. I have lots of them around the yard, both front and back, and I always love it when they bloom with the daffodils and turn my yard yellow. I don't usually cut any for inside, but have some faux ones that I use in several places instead. They always brighten everything up, whether inside or out.

I used to have several forsythia bushes when I lived in New Jersey. My children knew that when the forsythia was in bloom spring was truly on its way! The branches look beautiful in the simple glass vase.

Forsythia does not bloom in Houston, and by the time I return to Maine is is almost gone. That always makes me feel like I've missed something special.

I don't know if I have seen that plant here in Australia. I will have to google it to see f it has another name. Yours looks beautiful at any rate and it looks stunning on your dining table.

If you have a minute to spare I'd be thrilled if you could share your post at my weekly Say G'Day linky party. This post would be a great addition!

Best wishes,
Natasha in Oz

How absolutely beautiful! Whenever I see that bright yellow outside, I know that spring is coming! :)

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Cindy. I really need to plant one in my yard. Your arrangements are breathtaking. And I am so happy to see that you did not cut it like a shrub! Wonderful post! Pinning!

I am waiting for mine to be ready. My bush needs trimming anyway so as soon as the snow is off enough to clip it back I will be bringing in some branches
