Snow On The Forsythia

1st Snow On The Forsythia

Snow on the forsythia bush.

The first snow fell on the forsythia bush last week. I posted the first bloom of the forsythia¬†about a week ago. We have another snow in the forecast this week. It shouldn’t be long before the 3rd snow. If the wives tale holds true, winter will then end.

I can hope!

The Forsythia Bloomed Earlier This Week

The Forsythia Bloomed This Week

The wives tale I’ve heard is that there are 3 more snows after the forsythia blooms and a signal to the end of winter. It’s usually close to correct.

No matter the accuracy, it’s always a welcome alarm that it will not be long until we can get the motorcycles out.

If you don’t have a forsythia bush, I suggest getting one. Just find a neighbor and ask for some clippings. Dip them in root starter and stick them in the ground. It’s that simple and cheap.
