My Forsythia Bushes Are Blooming
April 22, 2016 9:20am CST
My forstythia bushes are blooming right now, just starting and it is such a delight to see after a long, long winter. I am enclosing a photo of one of them just starting to fill up. We had rain during the night and it completely changed the look of the backyard. I can almost see 40 shades of green and a lot more buds than yesterday. Hard to believe how beneficial a light and steady rain can do. Did you notice a lot of changes in your garden since last night?

Beautiful. Years ago I read a book about a lady who called her forstythia "April Gold". The sure do add a lot of colour at this time. I haven't seen any out here yet, but notice the grass is getting really green.

Your bush has a lot of colour in it, I like it. I noticed a big change early last week, I think it was due to the warmth we had last weekend. The buds on the trees have burst open, our many different small bushes in the yard have buds on them where there weren't a week ago, and some have opened. Such a beautiful time to enjoy a garden isn't it?
