Forsythia forcing

My friend K and I went exploring about ten days ago, looking for silent sleeping forsythia. It is always a delight to bring what appear to be dead branches, into a warm environment, place in a vase, and watch the magic unfold. If you haven't tried forcing forsythia, I can attest to it's rejuvenating value...the blooms say "spring is here"! Quince, plum and apple tree branches will also reward you with it's blooms this way although in my estimation, forsythia is the winner.
