Hibernation is over.

14 Mar

unnamed-3

Clearly I have been hibernating all winter. It’s been long, cold and snowy. I’ve only left the house to go to work, or to shovel. Or to cut branches of forsythia in the yard to force them to bloom so that I could hold onto the hope that spring is indeed on the way.

If you’ve got forsythia in or around your yard and you want to bring some spring indoors:

1. Cut forsythia branches (12-42 inches in length depending on your arrangement).

2. Put in warm water.

3. Wait 10-14 days and you’ll have bright blooms!
