Pretty drab and uninteresting I think you'll agree. The Quince Tree is not at its best in January but come April she'll be dressed in zesty green and the palest of pink. By September she'll be adorned with lemon coloured fruits which will gradually swell and turn gold. They reach the size of a grapefruit if you can imagine a pear-shaped grapefruit and will do you a nasty injury if you happen to be standing underneath the tree when they fall. October will see me in full quince-mode. There will be quince jelly, quince vodka, baked quince, quince sorbet, quince pies and crumbles and copious amounts of quince purée for the freezer. I will not need to burn my favourite fragrance oils because the scent of quince will fill the house. I just hope we don't have a late frost in April.
It may be drab and grey today but I managed to find some colour here and there.
My breakfast. Last year's marmalade needs finishing up!
Now that's what I call pink. Early forced rhubarb. Neon fruit - love it.
I discovered 'purest green' in my garden covering a brick.
And this jolt of colour is my current WIP, a bag for keeping my yarn in. Only trouble is by the time I finish I might not have any yarn left. I'm following Lucy's wonderful tutorial.
