Flowering Quince

Flowering Quince

This Quince was blooming at a garden I only visit in the spring. The flowers were kind enough to sit still for a second in the tremendous winds we were having yesterday. Wind can make it difficult to take flower pictures, it seems every time you have the camera set up right a gust comes along and blows the subject completely out of the frame. It can be a little frustrating.

This Quince was tall (about 6 feet) and had made several babies elsewhere in the garden. They can be a little difficult to grow as they seem to be very weak but the flower colors are beautiful. The salmon color of this one was very nice and not seen on many other shrubs or trees.

There was frost warning here last night but it didn’t get as cold as they said it would, thankfully. It was just nature’s way of telling me to put the brakes on a little and not get too carried away with the season.
