Yeehaw! Ah gots a forsythia bush in mah yard!!! Hot diggity!!!
I discovered this fact after wanting to go over and hack away at this bush to get it out of my yard. I tried last fall when I started clearing things away. But I gave up. I thought I'd have another go at yankin' things up from this portion of the yard, only to look up and see the yellow buds! Oooeee, this is so exciting! These bushes grow like crazy around here and they are spectacular! What a nice little surprise this morning.
Unfortunately, the rest of the yard looks like this at the moment.
Would you believe - that's progress? (the forsythia bush is on the left between the ugly blue tarp and the dark green drum).
