Take Three Thursday

If an effort to notice more in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.  The idea is to take 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in.  What have you noticed this week?

 See what some others have noticed this week:

This week my wanderings have taken me past several large groves of forsythia & this year seems to be a particularly good year for their spring blooming.  Forsythia is one of those interesting plants that blooms before the leaves are produced.  I am sure there is lots of science behind why, but I like to think that The Universe knew that after winter's dullest moments we humans desperately needed some cheering & bright sunshine yellow of forsythia does just that.

My three this week are of two of those large forsythia groves that I witnessed in full blooming glory & the final photo is the beginnings of my own personal grove - small so far,  but oh the plans I have for it ...

" Forsythia is pure joy.  There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia.  Pure, undiluted, untouched joy."   Anne Morrow Lindbergh


  1. I have noticed that it is a very good year for forsythia, as well! -Jenn

  2. I love forsythia - such a gorgeous colour.

  3. What a lovely welcome to spring - gorgeous!!

  4. We had good forsythia this year too.

  5. You'll look back at this post in a couple of years, and will be pleasantly surprised at how big you forsythia becomes

  6. Great photos.
    What I noticed about my surroundings the last couple of, lol
    I am in Thunder Bay and we are in the middle a ice turning to snow :(
    Spring will come and I will get to see some greenery hopefully soon.

  7. It's one of my mum's favourites. I think she'd agree with you about its cheeriness

  8. I'm always happy to see the forsythia. Like the daffodils, the cheery yellow color is an antidote to the gray months preceding them. Mine is on it's way to green now, but was lovely for longer than usual this year.

  9. I agree the cheeriness of the yellow groves is needed in spring

  10. I am so behind with my blog reading! Yes I too love forsythia. It finished some time ago here.
