1.  What plants are sprouting or blooming in your yard?

2. Forsythia: love it? Hate it?

3. When will you be planting this summer's herbs and kitchen garden veggies?

4. How many days last week were you able to leave the windows open?  Or at least turn off the heat for the day?

1.  What plants are sprouting or blooming in your yard? Everything, pretty much. 

2. Forsythia: love it? Hate it? Had to google. Forsythia seems OK, although I am not super-keen on yellow.

3. When will you be planting this summer's herbs and kitchen garden veggies? We have herbs year-round, but not enough room for actual veggies.

4. How many days last week were you able to leave the windows open?  Or at least turn off the heat for the day? Several.

Syphilis bushes are a different species of "bush."

Why, if I do not know what it is then obviouslly I neither  love it or hate it.

If you google it and go and see what it is, you might then have an opinion. smh

Probably not, a picture would not give me enough to go on to form an opinion of love/hate.

You are not serious, are you? You couldn't determine from a picture what something is and if you like it or not? Surprised

Not a well-informed one.  You could look at a picture of forsythia and think it is pretty, but not realize how invasive it is.  A couple of days of digging out unwanted spreading forsythia could completely change your mind on the stuff.

1.  Nothing much.  Some buds are starting to swell, and there are a few tips of what is probably daffodils coming through, but everything is late this year.   2. Forsythia is pretty, but hard to control.  I have one bush in the back yard that I struggle to keep under control.  I love the first blooms, but dang.  That stuff is invasive.   3.  Not until May   4.  We have a thermostat, and I think there have been a few days when the heat is only on during the night.  Not sure.

You can determine if you know what it is or isn't from a picture. SMH

1. Our flower boxes still have at least six inches of snow on them.

2. I'm terrible with flower gardening. I know I like peonies, but that's about it.

3. Memorial Day, usually.

4. Only for a few, brief minutes. We nearly hit 50 one day. It was 7 this morning, though.
