Dear forsythia: It is January. That is all.

We’ve had some warm days lately. I know. It’s like a tiny taste of spring in the middle of winter.

I love seeing your flowers, don’t get me wrong. But don’t get too excited here. Winter is not over. February will probably have at least one more snow. Another cold snap or two. So just because that day felt like it could easily be in April, it’s not. And plants that flower too early don’t do so great the rest of year. So please try to restrain yourself for another couple of months, forsythia. It’s January. That is all.
