Japonica, Japanese Quince



I was out the other day taking photos of the daffodils, again, after the winter I was feeling starved of colour.
Anyway my neighbour kindly introduced me to her 'japonica' otherwise known as japanese Quince and I fell in love.
What a beautiful little tree (for some reason I hate the word shrub) ablaze with colour
when everything else looks half dead and frost bitten except for the darling daffodils of course.

The quince is gorgeous! It's almost like Nature knows we need a jump start at the end of winter, so she entices us with some of the most beautiful flowers first.
