Forcing Branches

Another natural extension of Chinese New Year (Spring Festival), is the task of 'forcing branches'.
Essentially tricking buds into believing it's Spring, by bringing them indoors.
This works well for tree's already in need of pruning, since you can use the cut branches for indoor admiration (sneaky science!)

 After Two Weeks!

I'm in love with this little poem in story-form by Canadian, Margaret Atwood about two kids who get stuck in a tree and when they finally get rescued, they end up heading back into the tree again! 
Very sweet and on the growing Wish List!
