Yellow Spring Flowers For Your Garden

 Yellow is probably the first color we see in the spring. It’s a welcome way to get out of the winter blues! Here are just a few of the most popular yellow spring flowers from gardens everywhere.


1. Forsythia shrubs

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blooming Forsythia bush that wasn’t impressive. They put on a much-needed spring show that doesn’t disappoint.

Forsythia grows just about anywhere, and fast! I love snipping a few branches just before they bloom and bring them indoors. It brightens up the whole room and makes everyone happy.

Wouldn’t that look good on YOUR table? I bet it would. Forsythia bushes need to be pruned vigorously, so don’t feel bad picking a few branches to bring some “sunshine” into your home.

2. Yellow tulips

I see a lot more red or white tulips, but there are several types of yellow tulips that are just gorgeous!
