Forsythias 2014

Here are this spring's lot of forsythia. They are always the first thing to bloom after winter, and they were beautiful this year. Right now, most of them are pretty much done blooming, they don't last very long. Forsythia are in the olive family and native to China, but now they are everywhere!



“Send out your Spirit and they spring to life— the whole countryside in bloom and blossom.”
Psalm 104

Love Forsythia --and those are beautiful... Ours are LONG-OONE here ---but none of them were as pretty this year as they usually are.. Guess our winter didn't help them here.

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh Ginny, when I opened your blog the gorgeous yellow in your header almost took my breathe away. I love Forsythia but I wish it's blooms lasted longer.

They are gorgeous and I always enjoy seeing mine bloom every year. Believe it or not mine are just starting to bud now

If they don't lift the spirits then nothing will, ours have finished now but all the rape fields are out and they are also beautiful.

So pretty! My one little yellow bell fizzled on me this year...one tiny branch of yellow and gone in a blink. I think I have it planted too close to a pine tree.

I have never seen forsythia around here. It's absolutely beautiful!!!

Sandra said...

they must be like azaleas, they come and blast us with brilliant color and gone quickly but oh my how gorgeous they are while here... golden glow and so beautiful.

Absolutely Stunning!!! Truly.

Wow!. I have two small forsythia bushes which are planted on the north side of my house and do not get full sun so they a stunted somewhat. It does not help that my son ran over one of them with the lawn mower back when I first planted it either.

Wow they are beutiful!! What an amazing color. I don't see them around here in Georgia. I wonder if they don't like weather in the south. Happy Thursday xoxo

Hi Ginny, the forsythia in your area is stunning. Great photos! I have seen a little around and about but nothing as magnificent as what I saw in your shots. Have a great day :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Beautiful! It looks so lush and dense. The forsythia here wasn't as pretty this year. Hope you're having a good day, it's raining here so I'm being lazy!

George said...

You have some beautiful forsythia in your neck of the woods.
