The forsythia is just right for taking cuttings in our yard, right now.
I wait to see a single opening blossom. Then I begin taking cuttings to bring indoors. Obviously, I take those first cuttings from branches which overhang the paths and make themselves a nuisance to walk by. So, basically killing 2 birds, here. Neatening up the walkways, and bringing blooms inside to enjoy.
Can't pass up a free bouquet of flowers!
