Our Flowering Quince

Here’s a few photos of the flowering quince on the corner of our property. It was here when we bought the house, and has been growing ever since! I think it’s got to be at least 75 years old, maybe as old as 90. It’s a painful plant however, from its long sharp thorns. Also it does not produce the quince fruit, it just flowers– which isn’t a bad thing! I have hacked it down many times, but it always come back with a vengence.
