Forsythia burst into bloom around the first of May. We often make golden crowns to celebrate. Not this year... what a wild early spring we're having! Everything is exploding, and our bush is filled with glowing yellow blossoms weeks ahead of schedule. So, we made our crowns over the weekend. It really doesn't get much simpler than this. Any blooming branch with long, supple stems will do. Perhaps a willow? Snip a long "strand". If the sky is blue... hold it up and sigh. Ahhh.
Arborvitae soon. We just have a little more spring cleaning to do! Between her house in the trees and our real house, I've been jumping from one home project to another. I'm enjoying the new found energy that comes with our brighter days. February and March tend to be a bit dreary around here... Oh, April: I love you so! What's blooming in your neck of the woods?
