"Yellow" is the City Daily Photo theme day for April today. Click here to see all the interpretations. This yellow-blooming plant is a forsythia. I know it's commonly mistaken as the Idaho State Flower - the syringa. The syringa is also a shrub that branches out, but it has larger flowers that cluster, and are white. The old saying around here is that when the forsythia blooms, it's time to prune the roses. I started on two rose bushes earlier this week, but the cold wind drove me back inside before the job was half done!
Happy pruning - when your hands thaw out!ReplyDelete

Well, it looks like spring is showing promise down your way. Happy theme day ... and watch out for those thorns -:)ReplyDelete
What a lovely forsythia. I love this bush which always gives such a beautiful display.ReplyDelete
I love when the forsythia blooms. It is the absolute confirmation that spring has truly come. May that cold wind soon subside and be replaced by warm gentle rose-pruning breezes.ReplyDelete
Good choice, there a quite a few blooms on there.ReplyDelete
Yellow blooms!! That would have to be a June theme day to be possible for me.ReplyDelete
I really like forsythia - Such a happy bloom!ReplyDelete

Happy theme day!
Happy Spring! It feels like we had a very long winter and spring really needs to get here! But then again I say that evey year.ReplyDelete
So what do old sayings say when it's too cold to prune the roses? Tis a beautiful bush, no matter if the roses get pruned.ReplyDelete
Nice choice for theme day!ReplyDelete
