Blooming Friday

our forsythia in full glory on a bright spring day

Well, it's the vernal equinox today! And our forsythia is celebrating it by showing us its warm cheerful flowers. It is really interesting that this shrub with its denuded lifeless-looking branches would suddenly spring to life in a burst of sunshine in the form of these gaily-colored blooms.

Against the blue sky, they seem to be tiny suns sending warmth and delight to the once-cold earth, urging everything to rouse from their winter sleep. Well, who wouldn't want to wake up to a glorious sky?

I wish everybody a sunny warm weekend :).

Wow! The yellow forsythia against the very blue sky makes me think of the Swedish flag - the very same colours!
Enjoy your weekend!

Stunning photos! The bright yellow against the clear blue sky - just lovely! My Forsythia hasn't started yet, but then I have something really nice to wait for =).

Have a nice weekend.

to everybody: thanks a lot for dropping by... forsythia, being one of the plants that bloom early in spring, is nice to have around... and yes, against the blue sky, it resembles the swedish flag...
