Joy on a Rainy Sunday

“Forsythia is pure joy. There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia. Pure, undiluted, untouched joy.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  1. The forsythia is terrific in these parts this year. Everything from new starts to massive hedges are brilliantly yellow. Even in the wild areas where the buildings have gone to ruin the forsythia glows with its happy yellow flowers. It is indeed a joy!

  2. Forsythia was one of the first plants I put into my landscape design. I have happy childhood memories of our huge forsythia hedgerow full of yellow spring blooms. Crawling beneath the cascading branches, I found the perfect little hiding places for me and my dolls… and maybe a dog or two.

  3. I too think forsythia is a happy sight, despite its reputation as an overused, too-common shrub. By the way, I love your profile pic of the dripping green leaf… I hope it wins the GGW “color of green” contest… I’d vote for it. Love it every time I see it.

  4. Visiting your blog is like experiencing spring coming from the shadows all over again. It’s great to see the forsythia again, ours have finished, and moved on.

    In fact, with being a blogger, and reading blogs, we get to see spring for such a long time, earlier then ours, and as we move across the country, we get to reexperience it again through your eyes.
