Pretty dressed in her bright, spring yellow! When I was just a little girl I called these "For Cynthia" bushes.

Judy said...

Perfect! I keep trying to get this shot, but my little camera is just not up to the job! I will simply have to admire yours!!

judi said...

Now that screams spring!

Regina said...

Cheerful and vibrant one!
Enjoy the springtime Carletta.

What a wonderful macro of the forsythia. I love forsythia and have tried some shots of the individual blooms as opposed to the mass of them but haven't gotten close to what you've done here.

Denise said...

I love your macro of the Forsythia Carletta. A beautiful little flower.

Lovely photo, Carletta!
Good week, dear!

Tom said...

So this is 'Forsythia'.. I have a small bush in the garden and have often wondered what it was... shame on me for not knowing it's name. I have just checked and the leaves are just about ready to show.

I can't help but to smile seeing this forsythia. It reminds me of sunshine!

Thanks for visiting my place.

Great photo! Our forsynthia here is almost past its prime now. And it keeps getting drowned in rain! I guess our spring arrived before yours!!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Just lovely! Ours have buds, but haven't bloomed just yet. I'm looking forward to it!

Lovely composition and framing!

Stephany said...

Wonderful macro, Carletta! Love the way the pollen on the end of the stamen stands out - it almost looks 3D. (My forsythia still only has 5 flowers on it.)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Perfection, Carletta!

We always looked forward to this first blossoming back when we spent all year in the Pacific Northwest.

Rose said...

Carletta, this is a fabulous shot! So beautiful.

Gorgeous! So sunny and beautiful. (Ours are still tight buds contemplating the meaning of spring as we go through another cold spell, so thanks!)

Great macro shot of this forsythia. Ours are also in full bloom... Spring has arrived

Great macro shot and beautiful yellow!
