I used a painter brush tool in Photoshop to enhance this photo, not that my forsythia needs any encouragement this spring. I forgot to trim it last year, so it's gaily waving spindly yellow arms in the breeze. Once it stops blooming I will chop it down to size.
When my forsythia blooms I know it's time to plant potatoes and onions, so that is what I did on Saturday. I also planted a row of gladiolus. We got an inch of rain last night. Perfect timing.
