Forcing Branches

Nothing is blooming yet here, but today is a beautiful 58 degrees.  I wandered outside to take some photos with my new camera and to take a stab at forcing branches.

The holly is pretty.  My first photo with my new camera!

I cut a few branches off the weeping cherry in our front yard.


Forsythia.


Dogwood


And Japanese Maple


I'm new to forcing branches, so we'll see how I do.  I may have cut the branches a little too early.  I'm impatient.  Sue me.

And for those of you with vastly superior photography skills, any and all advice is appreciated!

You'll be surprised to see how quickly your buds will develop and bloom. Good luck!
