I love Forsythia flowers. The first brilliant displays of color in Spring where I call it Home.
Alas, March is a fickle month around here... so we get tastes of Spring, but everywhere you look, there are just a few small, slow signs that the color is coming to life.
So, in March, I always "force" Spring.
Branches are my favorite flowering things to "force". Tree branches are some of God's most beautiful sculpture. And forcing branches couldn't be easier.

But to be honest, all that I did was cut some branches off of my bush......... and plunk them in water! And wait about 5 days: Voila!
