Our forsythia is not near blooming yet, but I have some in the house that is...
I can hardly wait for the outdoor stuff to bloom...

"Spring's Lemon Icing"--I love it. You know Spring is just around the corner when the forsythia blooms. I'm still waiting for Winter--no big snows, not even any very cold days this year! I like a little taste of all four seasons, but Winter passed us by this year. Mickie :)

Yes, they are blooming & they're so beautiful, the color so welcoming. We've had a very mild winter, but Spring's color is always so very welcoming! =)

It's suppose to get up to 78 degrees today, here in Southeast Missouri... Niiice! =)

So beautiful. In our family it is forcynthia (our daughter's name and her understanding of the word when she was tiny.) Ah -- sob, now I'm homesick ;>)

Oh, you are so right about forsythia being spring's lemon icing! It is always such a delight to see, and always makes me think of Easter! Lovely photo!
