Like several other plants, the forysthia is already blooming. It does not seem to be as far ahead of schedule as some of the other plants, but it is still the earliest I can remember this plant blooming by about a week. One thing I have realized this spring is the value of having precisely dated photos. I can go back and check the dates on the photos I took in previous springs to see how they compare to the blooming dates this year. Most plants seem to be running about a week or two ahead of schedule.
