Cold, wet, windy, grey – thoroughly miserable and definitely not a day to be outside, which is a pity because there is plenty to do. After some weeks away the garden is looking good, but untidy! I am going to share my quinces and more from the Fortnight Garden this week.
The quince tree looked so miserable earlier in the year, with shrunken fruits, that I had given up on getting any fruit. However, it has surprised me – Quince Meeches Prolific.
Aren’t they beautiful? I have thirteen quinces on my tree which is three years old. What to do next?
Autumn arrived suddenly, two weeks ago while we were sleeping. It is a season which always feels like a journey to me, rather tired and messy, although still filled with gifts, and a journey which will take me into the darkness of winter. It feels like a last chance to ‘see’ before my eyes turn inwards.
