a quince I think

This image from a blog called 1,000 words a day reflects, I hope, how the quinces from my newly planted quince tree will look in about 2 years’ time.

I adore quince paste, quince jelly, quince conserve and anything else about these big fat fruit. My friend Elizabeth used to drop her extras off from her Hawkes Bay garden.

I did set out to buy a tamarillo but that, like a new lemon tree, will have to wait.

Ah, anticipation of the gardening, creating and eating variety.
