A Touch of Spring… in February?

A February Magnolia!

A February Magnolia!

This would be the type of post where I try to make you insanely jealous by showing you what I have surrounded myself with this past couple weeks.

February Forsythia

I wish I could post “scratch & smell” photos so you could experience the beautiful aroma as well!

We had a display at a Tourism Showcase in Cornwallis recently, and I thought it would be fun to force a few spring flowers to display.The forsythia is a commonly forced flower of course, but the magnolias were quite a conversation piece! (Because we had large magnolia branch fall in the December wind storms, I was able to “harvest” a number of small branches nicely in bud.)
So, given the weather (will it ever stop snowing?) it seemed like a good day to show you a touch of spring!
