I thought it was really weird because some of our Magnolias started blooming before the Forsythia this year, that's never happened! However, three days later the blossoms popped on the Forysthia - no pics from this year but this is what one of our Forsythias looks like every year - it just glows!

Great picture, Debbie. Funny, the magnolias here started to bloom first as well. That's out of the ordinary, too. Shrug!

Thanks Jo Ann. Smiling One of the things I totally forgot about this Forsythia ('Fiesta') when I posted the pic is not only does it glow when blooming but it's also a beacon in the gardens all year because it has brilliant gold variegated foliage! Thumbs up

I do not have any bushes here at the house, but I do have forced branches on the table.
I have been forcing new cuttings for about 6 weeks. They bring spring inside early. Smiling

I like to see this bush left to it's normal shape , always feel sad when people cut it like a hedge.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

I agree. My bush is a wild child like the ones above and the other one is just getting started. Thumbs up
