forcin'

 I don't believe in rushing most things, but "forcing" our forsythia's golden blossoms out early is always a favorite April activity. They typically bloom around May Day. Who needs to wait, when you can drop a few snipped branches into water and and have an indoor bouquet a wee bit sooner.
 I saved these pretty bottles for just this occasion. I think they're going to look perfect! I'll share how these do soon...
Do you force any blooms? I'm thinking of adding some of our crabapple branches to the mix, but might have to find some "just right bottles" for them.

  1. We pruned our apple tree and I took a few branches in the house and put them in a pitcher. Pretty blossoms have opened! Love it.
