Forsythia for Spring!

 If you have any forsythia bushes in your yard or neighborhood, you don’t have to wait until Spring has sprung to reap the benefits of this beautiful and sunny bloom. Forsythia for Spring! Just clip a few sprigs, place them in a vase of warm water and watch them bloom in just a few days!

They brighten up any room, and because the branches are very lengthy they can add a lot of height and drama in an otherwise bland room.

I placed a vase of forsythia in my front window and have enjoyed watching it bloom a little bit more each day.
