A Burst of Sunshine

Still life, forsythia

I swapped some pruned twigs from our Japanese Cherry trees for a basket of bare forsythia. I put the naked forsythia twigs in water while the ground was still covered with snow.  And then one morning….a burst of sunshine.

Wynton was not impressed.

I can’t tell you how happy this simple afternoon made me; the rare early spring sunshine, the burst of forsythia, a happy cat, music, returning birds outside the window, a computer…bliss.

  1. You can just see a small pot of ranunculus to the right. I love their form but the wild abandon of forsythia, it’s prolific little golden blooms…a must for your garden. I had to swap with a friend for hungry rabbits took my dwarf forsythia to ankle height.

    • I did get 4 people in my neighborhood to take the twigs from the Cherry trees and share photos of the blossoms on FB. I might do this exchange again next year during those days when winter lingers and just won’t get the hint and go.
