Force Spring In!

It has been one of those spring seasons that feels like it so slow to come after an especially hard winter. One day the sun is bright and the weather semi-warm, and then the next day- rain and cold! Fits and starts- that's how I feel about the start of spring- In order to force some cheer into your home with a taste of spring consider forcing some type of flowering branches indoors. I am lucky enough to have a forsythia bush in my backyard, so I always cut these branches and add them to a vase of water. It helps to add pebbles on the bottom of the vase so that the branches will not fall out of the container. They should start to bloom beautiful yellow flowers in the coming days! Look for flowering branches in your neighborhood to force. They make beautiful decorative touches for no money at all and will cheer your day!
