Today’s Inspired Action: Create Instant Spring! Winter blah is no match for the wide variety of bushes and shrubbery that will bring a burst of color indoors.
Coaxing branches to blossom is easy. There’s many varieties to choose from, including: crab apple, pussy willow, quince, dogwood, cherry, plum, forsythia, privet, red maple, gooseberry, witch hazel and weeping willow. Just cut the edges of the branches on a slant with sharp shears. Make sure to plunge the cuttings immediately into a vase of warm water. As days pass, keep the containers filled with plenty of clean, brisk water.
