Some people think that Forsythia is a bit vulgar if not overdone, but it could just be a case of setting perhaps ? Very old cottage in a nearby village.

Maynbe even bordering on twee, but what the hec I am old enough to make a fool of myself and not care who sees it.

I love forsythia! It is among the first to bloom in spring, it looks happy, what is not to like. If I am vulgar so be it.

I'd love to train one and see how it turns out. You know spring is here when you see the yellow of the Forsythia. Ours haven't bloomed yet.

Great plant for early color. It does well here and maybe I should plant one (I should look to see if it is deer proof).

I am so desperate for color by the time spring waddles in that I am happy with anything. That said, the yellows are my least favorite in general. The ones depicted look nice.

My wife hates it.

Get a job lot cheap.

@Fernapple I had a root from my dad I planted at our first house. When it grew up, she had a neighbor chainsaw it down while I was at work. Damn hurtful it was . Lol. Never planted another. Looks great in the woods.

@Bigwavedave Oh I am sorry but at least you have a good wife.

It's only for a couple of weeks and a sign of spring . I wish mine was as bright as those pictured .

I love it! Hello look at me! Yeah I got your attention. ?

Heidi68 Level 8 Mar 26, 2019

Certainly shouts, but like several here said, at this time in spring who wants pastel shades.

How very British! I grew up in a house that looked like a more rambling version of that.

OwlInASack Level 8 Mar 26, 2019

Yes I thought it looked very British and that it therefore would perhaps amuse the members from other counties especially. If only by confirming their prejudices.

I think the colour is a bit harsh in general but that looks really nice. Very spring-like.

You mean to say that you do not have bright colours in Spain? I remember my incredulity 30+ years when I returned to my birthplace and was told that they had painted the local swimming pool in garish colours. When I saw it I laughed my pipes out - it was painted in pale pastel colours. It looks a little more garish now -

The above bright yellow reminds me of our Australian Wattles - photos can be seen on my profile.

@FrayedBear In central Spain we have almost nothing but bright colors when we have flowers, which is for a very short part of the year. I have got to the point where I really dislike red, yellow, and orange. Flowers are much nicer in the UK - gardens full of flowers all the year round in an assortment of colours, bright or muted according to taste. When I have a garden in the UK again I shall go for pinks and lilacs with perhaps a touch of lime green here and there!

@CeliaVL I used to love the aroma of lilac flowers. When there in '86 I was asked and trimmed a lilac in the front garden. In the process I was stung by a wasp and so ended up returning to Oz with a swollen fist the size of a boxing glove as it stung me deeply between first and second knuckle.

@FrayedBear Nasty. I hope it didn't put you off lilacs.

@CeliaVL no. But rarely encounter them now.

@CeliaVL that's both lilacs and wasps. In fact the European Wasp is a reportable pest.

@FrayedBear only if you have a nest in a dangerous place, I think.

@CeliaVL The wasp - no. It is a dangerous noxious feral pest to be totally eliminated before it can get established like many others that have been allowed in - quite a few like the cane toad and prickly pear with official sanction.

@FrayedBear Australian rules are different from the UK.

@CeliaVL yes. But why are you not asking the question "how does an insect end up 20,000 kilometres or so from its normal habitat and place of origin?"

@CeliaVL @Cast1es why the sad emoji? Do you think that questions should not be asked?

@CeliaVL Australian climate and conditions are also very different. From memory we have at least five different climatic regions and dozens of environments.

@FrayedBear The problem of alien species being imported in one way or another is one which is very complex and I don't think we have found a good solution yet. I am not even sure that people are even aware of the problem in a lot of the world.
