Easy like Sunday morning...having fresh flowers on your window sill, especially at this time of the year. You can snip branches off of trees and shrubs whose buds are swelling and they will open up inside just like these Star Magnolia blossoms. Some favorites to try include forsythia, quince, any large flowered magnolias, and cherries. Look for buds that are already showing color and cut them BEFORE they get hit by sub freezing temps, which are forecast for later this week. Put the cut stems in any container that holds water, and check water level and change water every couple days. #cutflowers #forcingbranches #forcingblooms #starmagnolia #sharethelex #gardening #garden #visitlex
