Spring is here, which means flowers are popping up all over the yard! Here is what is currently growing in our yard. The flowers include Chionodoxa, Pink and Purple Hyacinth, Crocus, Flowering Quince, Dark Purple Hyacinth, Lots and lots of Daffodils, and Mini Grape Hyacinths. This is gonna be a good spring for growing flowers! 

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.
