Flowering quince for New Year's

    Newer Older

    All of you who have followed my 'stream know I love to photograph our Flowering quince. They are the first shrubs to bloom in February & March. Well, I noticed this month that the buds were quickly getting bigger and looked like they do in very early spring. Then they started blooming. I've never seen them bloom this early. I think after two cold winters (and snow this time last year) they were ready for another long cold spell and are confused by our bouts of 70o temps. When I mentioned it to my husband, he said we've got daffodils coming up in the front yard!
