Forsythia Confused

Minnesota is known for its intemperate climate.
This year, we had a cold summer, a glorious September, and October was non-existent.
This past week we had a respite with record days of 60 degrees plus.

A lot of chores got done.
Four dead elms were taken down and stacked for firewood...
thank you Tony Soboda and Ben Husby.
Two piles of rotting railroad ties were hauled to the recycler...
thank you Ben Hauger.
Richard finished the mulch project and replanted the ornamental grasses. While I was out, doing clean-up, I noticed a spot of bright yellow in the midst of all the grey/brown splendor.

Given a warm hand, there's still a little juice in the old stems.
