Overwintered Quince

Two years ago, ewtikins gave me a quince shrub from her garden in one of her buckets. It reduced to a handful of sticks overwinter, and I was delighted when it came back to life again in the spring.

Yet again, the quince has returned to leaflets after a brief winter in stick-form. It has an island of grass beside it, still in the bucket, still inadequately drained. This year, ewtikins no longer has a garden, and I still have her bucket. But this year - if all goes to plan - I will have a garden of my own, a place to plant or repot.

If all goes well, next year will see much larger quince sticks overwintering.

(If she lacks bucket storage space, I'm happy to retain it until she has need of it again.)

It's funny you should post about quince. I kept thinking of you while I was home in Atlanta because my parents have a lovely quince bush/tree in the front yard. It was in bloom, and my mother brought some of the blossoms in to brighten my room. I have a photo, which I will post somewhere soon for you.

I couldn't help but think of it either, even while writing it. It's so true!
