Exuberant forsythia! These nuggets are among the first signs of Spring here, and my neighbor's shrub is as golden as I have ever seen it. I have forsythia, but mine has never been this glorious. Forsythia (if you can bear to cut some of its branches) makes a wonderful filler in early-Spring arrangements. Just get some dogwood and redbud, perhaps a few Bradford pear blossoms, and what a beautiful bouquet!
