Yellow Arriving

I have a forsythia bush in my yard that needs to be cut back, and is long overdue for some composting or other soil enrichment.  My scraggly forsythia bush borders the woods and is easy to ignore.  The ground to the south and east of my forsythia bush rises into a small hill preventing it from getting a whole lot of the full sunlight it enjoys.  But, in spite of all that, my forsythia has begun to blossom.

My mother's favorite spring flowers were yellow tulips and my favorite spring flowers are daffodils.  (Both of these have been in my home for the Easter season.)  The goldfinches are back at the feeder behind my house.  Right now, it's still a bit hard to tell the males from the females, but in the coming days the males will molt into their bright yellow summer (breeding) plumage.

I welcome all of these yellows.

Spring, a good time to blossom.  Hope you are feeling it, too.

  1. O, beautiful and a welcome sight!
    I've noticed crocuses coming up here and the buds are slowly starting to show.
    Happy spring, Carolyn!
