My goodness but it has been a protracted end of winter in the mountains this year and aren’t we glad to see the onset of spring! Here is the herald of spring, my favorite early flower – the forsythia. We’ve caught this one a bit ahead of peak but we thought you’d want to see how it looks precisely on April 11th.
