Luckily, our new house came with its own flowering trees and bushes, so I don't have to resort to larceny to get my fix. This week our forsythia bloomed, and I grabbed a few branches for the living room. Yellow isn't typically my color, but I love these sunny blossoms.
Even if you don't have a flowering tree at home, this is the perfect time of year to pick some branches up at your florist. You only need a few to make a big impact. Just watch where you're walking when you carry them, and careful of that chandelier.
