Forsythia on fire.
All of a sudden, we've had a few days of chilly, windy weather.
Also all of a sudden - after weeks of easy winter - the forsythia have burst forth in their annual exuberance, roughly three or four weeks before usual.
Less-tamed shrubs in yards and parks dart out yellow daggers of ragged sunshine, pointing every which way to spring. Bushes that have been snipped and pruned are less rambunctious, holding in the many little flowers like a lush bouquet. Either way, the forsythia, looking especially brilliant in March surroundings, have unfurled their flames.
The daffodils are blooming, too, dainty and color-coordinated.
Early spring arrivals in impossibly pretty yellow - cheery signs of light and luck.
