I always get excited when the Forsythia blooms. It’s a herald of spring. These gangly, golden shrubs with their untamed branches and bursting star-shaped blossoms always make me smile.
Cut some and toss them in a vase—no arranging required. The unruly bedecked branches look equally fabulous in a porcelain Ming vase or distressed metal container.
Forsythia’s sunny yellow hue has been captured brilliantly in “Forsythia Blossom,” paint by Olympic (B11-3). It’s sold at Lowe’s stores, and looks great when combined with “griege” and cobalt blue accents. It’s captured above in the call out bubble.
Daffodils, too, announce the arrival of spring, nodding in the breeze. Sherwin-Williams’ sunshiny “Daffodil” paint (SW 6901) has a lovely creamed yellow tone. It would make any kitchen or laundry room croon.
