I'll be honest, I don't know what kind of flowers these are! (edit: as the comments suggest, these do appear to be forsythia.) I just loved looking up past them at the sky - felt like a spring dream.

This appears to be a forsythia. It is a very dramatic and unusual presentation with the two twigs pointing diagonally at the beautiful sky. Even the clouds seem to frame the blossoms. Well done.

I was thinking more like 'Gorse broom' but there are no spikes on here I could be wrong....Great shot against that beautiful sky...really high lights the plant.......

Thank you for the comments, all - I do believe jcferg99 is right, and that this is a forsythia. I peered at some pictures of Gorse and it doesn't look the same way that the plant did. I will have to go back next spring and take another picture when the plant is more mature.
