Flowering Quince

Like Chinese New Years Fireworks

bursting forth to ward off  evil,

the flowering quince appear

just in time to drive away the

darkest days of winter.

What is bursting forth in you that  will keep away the  gloom until Spring arrives?

Every year my friends and neighbors ask for cuttings to decorated their  homes for the various celebration around  the end of January and February… Then later in the year, little birds eat the petals (I swear they look like a bird-dogs hybrid with a pink lapping tongues). Never been able to capture them on film.

  1. I love flowering quince!! I used to make quince jelly with the quinces from my husband’s grandmother’s farm up in Orland, California.
