Forcing Forsythias

Today I went outside and cut some forsythia branches. I put them in a milk bottle with some water and hopefully within the week I will have some blooms. I have done this for the past several years and it really brightens up the house. Here is a link if you want to know how to do it, although I don't follow all of those directions.

Here is the before picture:

I will post another picture when (if) they bloom.

That's really cool. My dad has hundreds of forsythia in his front yard. I may try that.

do the kids not pull those down from there?

Oh yeah! In fact, I was telling Tyler "step back so I can take a picture". Ha ha. That was strictly for picture purposes. They are on top of the entertainment center now.

They will look so pretty! I can't wait to see the after picture.
