Double Flowered Plum - Forced

It's hard, some days, reading gardening blogs and websites from around the world and seeing all the lovely things in bloom - elsewhere.  Here in Manitoba we're just barely starting to green up, while Washington DC has cherry blossoms galore, California is harvesting the first garden peas and the Southern States have rhododendrons in their full glory.  Oh, well!  Inside our house, the stems of double flowered plum are starting to bloom and it's lovely.  You may have read the post on forcing - these were pruned just a short time ago and literally just dumped in a vase.  The warmth of the house convinces them that's it's late spring.  It's probably at least three weeks, maybe four before they bloom in the garden, so they are a joy to have now!
