I've often said that Forsythia blooms 12 months a year. However, I've never researched it but I, for sure, have seen it blooming in January, February, March, April and now October and November.

The "book" description of Forsythia, sometimes referred to as the Easter Bush, says that it blooms first and then the blooms are quickly followed by green leaves which is of course true. But there is certainly one exception to that rule since this one is blooming in the midst of a full Autumn regalia of Persian plum and Porphyry.

So, I'm gonna count next year and maybe you can help me with this Forsythia Bloom Research Project. If you see it blooming, report it to the Bloomer Police at CM.
