A Flowering Quince for ABC Wednesday

In order to find a contribution for Q on ABC Wednesday, I had to search through last spring's photos to find this closeup of the flowers on my quince bush.  The flowers emerge generally before the leaves and make the still cold days of spring brighten with their intense hues.  Today those blooms are gone and even the leaves have deserted the branches.  Fall is queen today!

I can guarantee more Q's to quaff your thirst can be found at ABC Wednesday.


  1. Fantastic photo - yes ABC Wednesday has us searching the ends of the earth! lol!

  6. Love this beautiful pink color. Ours here are pretty but are predominantly the orange variety and pink is my absolute favorite color for a flower.
