Moving on over

I've combined my blogs, just look at the last post, over at Alchemy of Clay. Trying to have a life outside blogland. Not sure it's going to work....

Maybe to be forsythia (updated)

Surely early purple somethings, as well as daffodil, but what is that branch with yellow buds?  I spy forsythia!

I cut some and brought it inside to force it to bloom.

Right after cutting...

24 hours later

Ta da!  Just 48 hours inside and we have blooms!


  1. Can't wait to see some forsythia in bloom here.

  2. Wow! That's a great way to get some quick blooms! They're very pretty.

  3. Wonderful, they make a great display.

  4. I love to bring forsythia inside to bloom. Haven't done so for a number of years. I know a vacant house with a forsythia bush -- dare I sneak a few branches? 48 hours and you have a lovely spring bouquet! -- barbara

  5. Forcing forsythia is such a beautiful way to hurry Spring along. (The little purple flowers are, I think, periwinkle.)
