Frozen Forsythia

This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
cause you're not where you belong;
inside my arms.

I still believe in summer days.
The seasons always change
and life will find a way.

Ill be your harvester of light
and send it out tonight
so we can start again

They are making a brave attempt at attracting bees even in these extreme conditions, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, I'm afraid they do this every year... they'll bloom way before the our final frost. They are not native - thus easily confused by our schizophrenic springs!
Early bloom or late snow Elizabeth...Beautiful image!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Early bloom, for sure! Thank you Richard!

Unfortunately we cannot listen to "Winter Song" in this country, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I'm sorry - It's a really lovely little song. The video is particularly charming as it shows little cartoon caricatures of Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles traipsing around in the snow.
Uh-oh. Since forsythia is almost always one of the first things to bloom come spring, Elizabeth, I can just imagine the surprise of one last winter's blast. But look at the beauty of it!

(Regretfully, "The uploader has not made this video available in your country." BooHoo.)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do always seem to jump the gun... technically we have another five months of winter!

Oh I'm sorry you can't see the video - It's a really lovely little song. The video is particularly charming as it shows little cartoon caricatures of Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles traipsing around in the snow, picking up little gray hearts and putting them in a basket. Until in the end everything turns colorful and flowers grow, and all the little basket hearts turn red. It reminds me of Annette keeping me company while my arms wait for Frank.

I read the reply to Ray. I would imagine that by now they understand OT to bloom before snow is over....
Great shot, forsythia is such a wonderful bush/flower/plant...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - you'd think they'd get it figured out. But after two weeks of 65 degrees (what is that? 18 degrees Celsius?) - I guess I can understand their confusion!

Oh, what a surprise for the forsythia that was dreaming of springtime as I assume.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, they do this every year. And we don't ever count on winter being over until June!

Yellow and white go so well together Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do, don't they! A lovely combination!

Brrr. They look chilly with their snow bonnets on!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I imagine they are!
Can't watch the video in the UK. Never mind the picture is fine on its own
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I'm so sorry - it's a lovely song, and a really charming little video.
Thank you though, Bill!

The yellow looks good against the snow is is holding up well against the winter onslaught. We can't enjoy the song from your link in the UK but I've found it on Youtube; lots of hearts in the snow and some lovely wintery scenes.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is a lovely color!
I'm glad you found the right video - I thought the little cartoon caricatures of Michaelson and Bareilles were so charming!
The snow removal fellow may have killed my forsythia this year. He tries every year but this year I think he has done it. I liked the song, especially the cello.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh no!!! They're such a delight!
I'm glad you were able to see the video. I thought the little cartoon quite charming!
I know how it feels this morning, it's a buff+ scarf day smile Lovely shot Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I'm glad you wrapped up warmly, My Love! Thank you!
very beautiful
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Chantal!
love this Elizabeth... delicate!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Ronky!
nice vestiges of autumn ... lovely!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Rob! This is actually a late winter scene. The Forsythia likes to be the first to bloom in the spring time, and they always jump the gun- blooming after a short warm spell... but well before winter is over!
This is lovely Elizabeth, even more enjoyable than the ice shots, and that's saying something.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Goodness, thank you so much Brian!!!
Ooops. A little misjudgement there, but looking quite healthy and pretty in the snow
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - it happens every spring... with luck they survive!

A lovely picture of the forsythia battling its way in the snow
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Anne- I thought it was so pretty!
Lovely!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Tom!

The yellow is a stand out from all that white snow
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it lovely!
