Quince

quince

I’ve walked past this bush so many times, and have often wondered what it might be. Today as I walked past there was someone working in the garden, so I asked what the flower was? Apparently it’s a quince bush, it grows a fruit similar to a lumpy apple,and traditionally quince jelly would be made with the fruit. This particular bush is at least 70 years old, as the owner says it’s been there since he was a youngster,  and he’s just turned 70!  I’ve certainly heard of quince jelly, it’s one of those old-fashioned preserves people like Miss Marple used to have with their afternoon tea 🙂
