Quince Blossom with Robin

Sunday, 19 May 2013











   






The robin and I have been appreciating the quince blossom. There is a lot this year. I hope it all comes to fruition. It seems like a long time since I tasted quince jelly.

  1. The pictures are lovely - everything looks so much better against a bit of blue sky.
    I wonder if the robin took time out from a hectic feeding schedule to pose for you. We have a robin nesting in our garden shed at the moment. We really would like to get in and give the shed it's annual clear out but we only sneak in when absolutely necessary, grab the tools we need and get out quickly.

  10. We have 'trained' our quince tree over an arch - it is not particularly impressed with the procedure but it was the only way I could have one in the garden. No flowers last year and quite a bit of mildew. This year so far (after a drastic trim to let in more air and light) it has a few flowers on so am also keeping my fingers crossed. Gorgeous scented flowers aren't they?

  11. Beautiful photos. I have never seen a quince tree in "real life," only on your blog, I think. I always look forward to pictures of it.

  12. Beautiful! Your robin is better behaved than mine who gets very cross with me disturbing his peace and quiet.

  14. Please feed Mr (Mrs?) Robin some crumbs. He is looking a tad scraggy and in need of some tlc. I am on the look out for a mulberry sucker to post to you but so far none have sprouted. Hope the wild winds keep away this year so you can get quincing.

    1. I'd love a mulberry sucker -but will I live to see it fruit?

      I thought the robin looked a bit scraggy too. I wonder if the late spring has adversely affected the birdlife.

    2. I think you might... our tree was a sucker from a huge tree which was chopped about 25 years ago. Our tree gives tons of fruit and is quite a size now... depends how long you plan on living I suppose!!

  15. Every day I stand at my kitchen window looking out at the garden, and ill-wishing the little beech tree which my dear husband is nurturing - as if we don't have enough flamin' leaves in the garden! And I think how that spot would have been just right for a little quince tree. Ah well, in another life, maybe............

  16. I think robins look a bit frazzled this time of year due to feeding demands of nestlings! He obviously was enjoying a second or two's breather when you snapped him. I think the robin is the most iconic bird and he looks lovely in your quince tree, frazzled or not.

  19. It's good to see what quince blossom should look like. My little tree is now in its second year an d no blossom at all yet. It looks very pretty, so hope I don't have to wait much longer

  20. I've seen some rather thin robins too. Reminder to self to refill feeders. Your quince blossom looks very promising.

  21. I have never seen quince blossom before - they are beautiful. Lovely photos with the robin too - thanks for sharing.

  22. Glad to see that your tree is looking so lovely, and had held onto its blossom. My fingers are crossed for later in the year. Funny to think that it was my googling for information about Quince trees three years ago (still not acted upon), which brought me to your blog.
