Awaiting Bloom

A week or so ago, I read in the newspaper that if we're going to prune our trees, we should do it now. Then, a few days later, Lauren from Pure Style Home had some inspirational photos of cut branches. I had always wanted to do this, but our trees have always been too small. Now our cherry tree is big enough, I had my husband prune some branches off. He didn't understand what I was trying to do, so he first cut about a foot off a branch. Too short, I said. I asked him for a larger branch, and the second branch is a lot better. I put it in some water, and we'll see if those beautiful cherry blossoms will bloom! Happy last day of Winter everyone (here in the USA, that is)!

The last day of winter!!! I didn't realize that! I've been forcing branches for a month now! It's great.
