The vibrant yellow forsythia, which blooms here at the end of the April, is always a sign of spring. In January, I like to bring some branches inside and watch them slowly bloom.
Cut stems on a diagonal.
Pound the ends with a hammer or a rock. This will help the woody stems absorb water. I covered an old catalog with a plastic bag to protect the table.
Place in a jar of water or a vase. I don't always do it but it's a good idea to change the water every week to keep it fresh.
