The Forsythia

Blogroll Me!
Winter can not let go of its grip here in Ohio till 3 snows after the Forsythia blooms. That is what my grandmother and mother told me and I think it is probably more accurate than the local weather channel.
I saw this little shrub today on my way home and my heart was gladdened. What I don't know is when it's blooms started happening. We could have had one snow since it started to bloom. One thing for sure is that winter can not officially exit until this plant hearkens in spring!

My brother Norman and I were JUST discussing the forsythia today and he said we've had TWO snows. Mine just started blooming this week! Norman, who lives 10 miles away, says his has been blooming for two weeks!
