It’s hard to describe what’s going on in my yard lately. Mostly because I do not seem to be terribly observant and completely miss things that are right in front of me. Like bright sunshine yellow.

Why, hello, beautiful yellow flowering plants. I had no idea that you were there. And I’ve lived here for over a year.

Seriously, who misses two giant yellow flowering shrubs on the side of their home? I swear, these popped up out of nowhere. And they are almost neon rather than warm yellow. Neat!

Or maybe I dismissed them for dying plants (there seem to be so many around here). This one certainly looks like it’s not doing so well. Bullied by the two other plants beside it, I suppose. Does anyone know what these things are? My sources (Google) tell me this is Forsythia. Am I right?

  1. You're absolutely right – guess I was fooled by Google. They make it too easy to misspell sometimes when they look up what you meant anyway (though I appreciate it when I get fat fingers and trip over my keyboard). I'll correct it ASAP.

  2. Yup those are Forsythia! We have three of them on our property and I always love seeing their bright yellow blooms early each spring. Not sure what those shrubs are beside them but the last one you may want to cut down to the ground or remove all together. Our forsythia are challenged by the zone 4 temps and shady location but down where you are they can get unruly fast as they are very fast growers. Here's an article on how to prune them:
