Flowering quince is one of our dependable spring bloomers here. I don't see a lot of it in the newer developments, but around the older houses it shows it's cheerful blossoms every spring. It actually thrives on my special type of gardening, which consists almost entirely of benign neglect. ;) I always cut a few branches to force for Easter. This year, it's blooming outside at the same time. Wishing you all a happy Monday, dear bloggers.
