The Estate’s flowering shrub collection is going through its cycle and as always it is a beautiful sight. This late flower on the quince caught my eye because of the color.
In hindsight this was a quick snapshot and now I wish that I had taken the time to set up the shot better. This flower is a little beat up and not as refined as the earlier blooms, which was about a month or more ago. I wouldn’t really recommend Flowering Quince unless it was for a really big garden. They often look quite ragged by summer.
