Welcome to this week's {floral friday}!

Here's another beautiful contribution by my talented mom. She took pictures of this flowering Quince a few months back and lets me share them with you today. Danke, Mama! :)

A few facts about the flowering Quince:

  • Quinces are popu­lar garden shrubs that are among the first to blossom in the spring.
  • Quinces belong to the rose family and come from eastern Asia. {source}
  • It produces beautiful flowers, but its real treat are its edible fruits, which can be made into jams and jellies with medicinal value as anti-imflammatories and astringents. {source}

I'm partying here! ❤

    That pale pink flowering quince is just exquisite. I have the dark one, but I covet that one of yours. Thanks for sharing.
