Day 339: Forsythia

image

The forsythia is blooming. Or, I should say, the few branches that escaped the loppers are blooming. We had two huge bushes right beside the house and last year we cut them back.

Of course, forsythia is a butt. It’s back. I thought about throwing a cover on that part of the yard to kill it, but I bet we’ll be fighting it for quite a while to come.

Yes, the little yellow flowers are pretty but the rest of the summer and all through winter it looks like a scraggly unkempt monster bush. There are plenty of scraggly things on the farm already.

Other things are blooming now too…
