The first to spring up and the last to wither, sometimes withstanding even the cold, these are Forsythias that are planted around the building were we live.
I never knew how it was called then but jumping around posts for Today’s Flowers, I learned that they are Forsythia. At first, they seem to have no leaves, but I guess just like sakura/cherry blossoms, their flowers comes first and then the leaves grow afterwards.
Have a wonderful week!
My TF entry this week : in HERE. I hope you have time to visit. Thanks
Happy to hear you learned about forsythia from my post! Yours do looks so lovely. Yes, I believe I get green leaves all over my back fence after the yellow blooms fade.
Two delightful photographs. Your forsythia close-up is great. Thank you so much for sharing.
What I have done with these branches before they blossom is to place them indoors in a vase of water and they open up beautifully giving a dull Spring day a burst of sunshine!
Forsythia a sure sign that Spring has sprung!!
The forsythis blossoms are so bright and cheery!

Forsythia are a welcome harbinger of spring for sure. Thank you for sharing the close up as well as a shot of the hedge. Have a blessed Easter week.
Beautiful shots of the forsythia. I have some in my yard but it was years before I learned the name.
Yellow flowers give good energy! nice shot! =)
When Forsythia blooms it is a wonderful sight!
A beautiful golder Forsythis hedge, so nice in an impersonal city block.
These are lovely! Don’t forget to ad your link to the page – or if you did it didn’t work – I found you by accident! lol
I’ve loved these since childhood! Yes, soon only green leaves will fill the space where the beautiful blooms have been.
What a beautiful yellow blooms, so perfect for MYM too…I’m not sure if forsythia grows here too, maybe not ‘coz I haven’t seen one yet or maybe I just don’t look that hard. 🙂 Happy Easter!

So very pretty!
Beautiful Yellows I can almost smells the flowers!
Forsythia are really nice in the spring time but they are just kinda bland after the pretty yellow flowers are gone from them. They sure look pretty in the spring time though. Hope you have a wonderful week.
