Forsythia

The Forsythia shrub is all yellow petals in early spring. It’s a really tough plant, always trying to sprout out like crazy every year.

There’s a Korean string instrument, the ajaeng (raspy cello sound) that uses a bow made from forsythia stick.

It’s nice to see something so early in the season, already in its prime.
