Forsythia-Spring 2013

Here are a pair of Forsythias that I collected in the spring of 2006.

Wow, never would have imagined that forsythia would make an interesting bonsai candidate. Really, nice and interesting looking plant/presentation.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

SO glad Alex commented and bumped this thread -- I was also going to say that they look lovely and very interesting earlier, but I missed the opportunity.

Are they the first to bloom or do you have witch hazel, too? Great harbingers of spring. 8)
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

No witch hazel but I do have some young Quince I've been growing out. Unfortunately some unknown rodent got to them this past winter and chewed them nearly to the ground. The good news is that nearly all have sprouted anew.

Thanks Alex, the tricky part is finding one with a trunk rather than a jumble of thinner shoots.
