Not apples

Quince blooms

The quince* is now in full bloom after at least two attempts that were quelled by cold. I love the wiry twisted branches as much as the flowers. Thanks, D&F.

It’s a Chaenomeles spp., and not the fruit quince, which is Cydonia oblonga and the only member of that genus. The blossoms look apple/cherry/plum-ish, as they are also members of the Rosaceae family.
