Forsythia is one of my favorites of early spring. Lovely shots.

Beautiful, Carletta. One of these days we will have bushs in bloom here, too. Until then, I will enjoy yours and the others I see in blogland.

This is beautiful!! My first encounters with Forsythia was when I visited my sister at springtime, when she lived in Altoona, Pa. I was swept away with the striking beauty of this plant in bloom!!

Mimi said...

Oh Beautiful, Carletta!
There's one in the garden next door to us, and yesterday I noticed it in bloom. I'm sure it has been blooming for a few days, maybe even a week, but I only noticed it yesterday, and that yellow cheered my heart.
Happy Spring indeed!

Lovely! For some reason, my forsythia didn't set many flowers before the leaves came out. It must need vitamins. :)

OK now I KNOW it is Spring! Our daughter used to call it "for Cynthia" (her name, of course)....
Another plant we had and loved in Oregon, but not here.

When I was a kid I called these "For Cynthia's." Ours aren't in bloom here yet, but I am certain they will be soon. Happy Spring!
