Beautiful, Carletta! Forsythia doesn't bloom reliably in my area but it was a big part of spring in my childhood so I LOVE seeing it.

kayleen said...

So pretty. Thanks for sharing.

Cris said...

Beautiful shade of yellow Carletta. Take care.

I love forsythia! And am planning to put some in the garden in a few weeks (or a month or so). Lovely!

Arija said...

Forsythia like pussy willow and blossom tree sprigs can be brought into the warmth and will flower while there is still snow outside. They are quite amazing.
Lovely photo.

VALKYRIEN said...

Leora said...

How wonderful! Love the diagonal of the photo and the bright yellows against the dark and the subdued wood. Maybe tomorrow I'll cut a branch and give this a try.

Naturegirl said...

Carletta :Love this photo and music!
If I were not vacationing in the desert I'd be forcing the forcithia..a sure promise that Spring is in the air!! :)

Great picture!!

I really like this shot. The lighting is wonderful and that's such a beautiful little vibrant yellow flower.

Judy said...

Beautiful photo! I am forcing forsythia for the first time this year, so it is exciting, watching the buds swell. It has been a week, and I can see yellow!!
I love the way the flowers are turned different directions, so you get a slightly different view of each one!

Neal said...

I love it!!! Those always tell me spring is around the corner.

BTW, I'm leaving tomorrow for a few days...be back Thursday.

I don't recall the name of this flowers, but they're often seen in the homes during the Lunar New Year festival :)
Lovely shot of it!!

marie-louise said...

Stunning picture. Reminds me of a Japanese flower arrangement (Ikebana). Love the yellow contrasting with the brown.

Day4plus said...

Oh so pretty. Isn't the yellow great. MB

Titania said...

The golden Forsithia is always so welcome as it is one of the first flowers to bloom in spring and like Arija said nice to take inside when the buds are still firmly closed.
The sqirrel is very cute.

George Townboy said...

Gorgeous shot!

Olga said...

I really like such macro shots. Spring is in the air!

Raven said...

Beautiful. I think your photos are getting better and better all the time. I'm so looking forward to the forsythia and my pink quince bush to put on their fancy duds.

maryt/theteach said...

Incredible shots both here and on "Round the Bend!" I've tried forcing forsythia and it's always worked so well! Lovely!

Leedra said...

The Forsythia is always a welcomed beginning sign of spring.
