Quince blossom

The weather is so cold, windy and wet that bees are unlikely to be venturing out very much which is a shame for the quince tree. Its blossom is just coming to an end (the photo was taken a week ago) and I’m not sure how much fruit it’s likely to bear.

It’s a tall, sturdy tree – which it needs to be in order to bring hefty quinces to ripeness.

Last year we had such a glut of quinces that we even have some left in the fridge, six months later. The skin on one or two is slightly wrinkled, but other than that they seem to be in reasonable condition.
