"Forcing" sounds so harsh... let's just call it "suggesting," ok?  I "suggested" to a couple of magnolia branches and one unidentified tree's twig that if I brought them inside, gave them lovely warm water, and lots of encouragement, that they could maybe open their flowers early?  And today my reward was this lovely pink branch (of whatever it is).  The magnolia buds are moving slower, but this one is shedding its fuzzy gray jacket so I'm hoping it will soon bloom for me.  It's wonderful to have something blooming in here when there's still some snow outside and it's so chilly.
