Flowering quince...


(Kim's sybil texture, hardlight, 30% opacity)

Someday I hope to plant some flowering quince in our yard.
I just love its beautiful coral colored blossoms.

In the meanwhile I foraged these blooms from some city owned woods near our home.
They are the long forgotten plantings of some old owner in years gone by
and are now just about covered up with blackberry vines.

 I managed to rescue a few of these beauties with only a few minor scratches from the blackberry thorns
 and am enjoying them immensely added to this tray of things on my dining room table.

  1. Beautiful china, pretty flowers... what a lovely set-up! There is something really beautiful about flowers on bare twigs --no leaves, all blooms and buds.

    1. We were in Missouri last month. I did notice it's "blandness" this time of year compared to our evergreen part of Oregon.

    2. Ahhh, you see. Especially after coming from a world much like yours, this time of year kills me. But the sunny side is that I get to visit your world, with your posts. That cheers me right up.
