A totally non-knitting post – our Japanese Quince bush is just beautiful this year. I’m hoping that the hummingbirds will be here soon to pollinate the blossoms — the quince fruit make delicious jelly. Last year there weren’t even enough quinces for one batch so I’m really looking forward to a bumper crop.

The ruby-throated hummingbirds love these bushes and it’s fascinating to watch them darting from blossom to blossom. They’re so fast I’ve never managed to capture a picture — it’s always “right here is where the hummingbird was when I started to take the picture” — lol!

Hope you enjoy this little bit of colour!
