I made a few more floral crowns this week with forsythia from our yard. This time both boys got crowns and were quite happy to don their floral headdresses. Forsythia blooming usually indicates spring is almost here but this year the bedraggled blooms seem to be saying spring has been hanging around before it was quite time. Forsythia is a messy sprawling shrub ubiquitously planted for its early blooms. It is not a plant I have much affinity for but I recently learned forsythia flowers are associated with hope and anticipation. I have a lot of hope for a future where the love, creativity, and acceptance I see in these two boys matures and they venture out into the world.
