Spring has arrived...

We've had the warmest spring opening on record, forcing all the flowering trees into bloom right now. Tonight we are predicted to have a hard frost, so I've just been running around the out of doors (oooooo cold!) snapping pictures to preserve the blooms that will be affected.
The forsythia this year is stunning! Vibrant yellow blooms packed onto the branches. It really looked best yesterday, but I didn't get that picture taken. It's starting to drop it's blooms, which look so beautiful in the green grass it's like a bonus gift the blooms give. I planted these around an electric pole in our yard and only trim when absolutely necessary (to save a lawn mowers eye, for instance). I much prefer to let the forsythia grow naturally, as mother nature knows what she is doing. Amazing!
