Noticing the Forsythia

The forsythias are in bloom on campus. Their bright yellow flowers are so cheerful that I can’t help but smile. They remind me of the one at the end of the drive at my parent’s house which is always the first thing in bloom and brings much needed color to arid, high climates like Denver and Ankara. I also see tinges of green on the trees and am just waiting for the leaves to come out fully. But, I know I will miss the day it happens- I always do because it is inevitably the case that I look up and one day the trees are all in bloom and I don’t know when it happened!
