Forcing Spring To Come Early

I couldn't resist! I had to clip some forsythias from the yard last week and within days they burst into color inside the warm cottage. The bare branches bloomed with such beautiful yellow flowers that I think I will clip new twigs and do it once more. They won't bloom outside for another month so this allows me to have a little spring before its time! 

                             Notice how the leaves pooped out after all the buds blossomed. 

I am hoping I can root each branch and plant them all around the yard 
when the soil gets warmer this spring.
