Forsythia yet?

Anyone have forsythia blooming yet? I'm chomping at the bit to start pruning roses and I'm looking for a good excuse...

Do you try forcing it to open for cut flowers?

No, I don't force them (my mom used to do that for me to take to teachers as a bribe when I was a kid) I just use them to time my rose pruning. When they bloom, I prep for rose surgery!
