Beautiful yellow flowers. It looks like spring has sprung :-)

Janie said...

What a bright, happy color. Your macros are great!

They are very pretty. But they don't last very long, right? Sad.

Re your comment on Ocala: Yes, it was quite chilly - in the 70s I think.

I always love to see these blooming in spring.

RedPat said...

I noticed them today - they seem to be at their peak! Nice shot!

They're lovely. We have a small forsythia but it's only a couple years old. It bloomed in our early spring but is still so immature that it didn't have too many blossoms. We're hoping for better results next spring.

I love forsythia and its happy yellow color. Unfortunately, you are reminding me that my big chore for tomorrow is cutting mine down. They are badly overgrown and need to be refreshed.

Stun, stun, stunning!

Martha Z said...

With its masses of bright yellow blooms forsythia make a statement and what it says is SPRING!

Beautiful! I miss my forsythia bushes...I guess I'll just have to plant some here in Wisconsin.

Rebecca said...

I think forsythia is so hard to photograph well, but you did a great job here.

Mine too I am so happy I see the first color in my garden and it's yellow! Great macro shots love it!

see you there! said...

Wonderful shots. I just recently learned I've been pronouncing the name wrong - it is apparently named after a Mr. Forsyth and should be Forsyth-ia not Fors-ith-ia. Still a great plant.
