It’s getting to be my favorite time of year here in North Carolina. Winter is giving up its wrath and spring brings a new array of flowers just about every day. Forsythia lead the coming of spring in our area. When they (and the hellebores) bloom, I know winter can’t do much more harm. Though all my neighbors grow gorgeous forsythia bushes, ours is nothing more than some scraggly branches. Several years ago I made the mistake of planting it in too much shade, but it manages to put forth a few flowers each spring nonetheless. This spring I thought I’d enjoy the branches more inside than out, so I cut a few.
And as a bonus bouquet, Charlie clipped us some daffodils and put them in my always-makes-me-smile glug glug jug.
