Forsythia

From afar I always thought this was a shrub with pale green leaves. Today a friend of mine pointed them out, saying how much she loved these bright yellow flowers, which were growing wild by the side of the road.

It’s Forsythia, so vibrant and pretty, and I can’t believe that I had been missing it all this time. I looked it up, and I found some surprising information about it here, if you’re interested.

Lesson learned:

Don’t take everyday things for granted. Take a closer look.
