Gorgeous Scarlet Quince
How gorgeous is this flower?
Texas Scarlet Quince
I bought three small quince bushes about 9 – 10 years ago to plant along the backyard hill. The bunnies LOVED them! Our yard is overrun with rabbits who normally leave most of the plants alone…..except for the quince. They could not get enough of these bushes, nibbling them right down to the ground. Somehow one managed to grow quietly when they weren't looking. For whatever reason, this year it went wild and bloomed! It is so loaded with flowers, the branches are sagging. I just love seeing this beauty, full of red flowers, standing out like a wonderful sore thumb in a sea of yellow and pink spring flowers.
I can't wait to paint these flowers!
