In the dead of winter…

Once again this year my Flowering Quince bushes are blooming in the dead of winter. The buds and blooms have survived many nights of below freezing temperatures. We have what may prove to be a severe winter storm coming this weekend. I hope the Quince survive the ice and snow that are predicted to be on the way.

    My quince never blooms. I had no idea that it was a winter blooming shrub.

    1. It’s only been during the past few years that it’s started blooming in the winter. Before that, it always bloomed in the spring. I think it’s confused. LOL

    1. It’s lovely. I was walking down my driveway to the mailbox and noticed the buds and blooms.
