“Forsythia”

“Forsythia”

“The greatest wealth is to live content with little.”
― Plato

This turned out to a very simple image. I was given a few stems of forsythia to transplant in may garden and took the opportunity to make a few photos before they dropped their flowers.

I recall having one of these early blooming shrubs in the backyard growing up and then they seemed to vanish for a while. But recently , I’ve seen them more prevalent and it was nice to be offered a few shoots to try to root. I’m hoping they take hold, so we have a bit more colour in our yard in the spring.

Even these flowers, in their simplicity, are quite fascinating when you look closer.
