Gardening A to Z: F is for Forsythia
I never really was a big fan of forsythia bushes. I don't know why. I remember having them while I was growing up. They just never did anything for me. But this year is different. I think I am noticing them a bit more this year because they remind me of my dad. He was always so happy to see them bloom and always had a bush in his yard. With the unseasonably warm temperatures, the forsythia bushes burst into bloom earlier than usual. It was a taunt that spring was just around the corner. Of course, last night there was a bit of snow and it is really cold. It doesn't feel like spring at all. But those forsythia bushes seem to hold a promise that warmer weather and sunny days will soon be here.
