Forsythia time...........

This huge forsythia bush lives in my neighbor's yard up the road, and we pass it on our daily walks. Isn't it just wonderful and sunny!?? Of course these shrubs are supposed to have long, draping "arms" full of yellow flowers, but these folks let someone "trim" this poor bush to within an inch of its life, so it makes strong and straight-up limbs now! Maybe if they let it be a couple of years, it will get back to its naturally beautiful and graceful shape. In the meantime, it gets full sun most all day so it makes lots of people feel good just to see it everyday as they pass by on the road!

hi phyl
my neighbor cut his forsythia waaaaay back last fall ;(
-so they probably won't be as beautiful this year-they were long and drapey-you could climb under the branches-his made for a beautiful hedge-we'll see what happens when they begin to open here-but tooo early yet!
have a great day
