Forsythia are Spring. They are usually in bloom during that part of early Spring when people burn the brush in their yards and a jacket is still necessary if you are outside. Around here, Forsythia flourish and there are flashes and bursts of yellow in nearly every yard it seems.

It has been an unseasonably warm Winter, so I would not be surprised if very soon those bright flowers were everywhere, but if you are impatient- you could always "force" some Forsythia branches. They are the perfect candidate for blooming indoors- woody and deciduous (according to Martha Stewart the best type of shrub/tree for forcing), there is a simple how-to if you wish to enjoy the pretty yellow-ness inside as well as in your yard.
