I think this is a flowering quince, but not 100% sure. It is really quite a lovely thing, though. Saw it growing in one of my favorite horticultural haunts.

Thank you very much! I don't think they smell, but I can't say for certain--I didn't give them a "sniff test!"

I've definitely heard of the jam, but never ate any.

Thank you so much, Barbara! I really appreciate the features, and look forward to it. For some reason, people seem to like this one a lot (not just me, for a change)! Sometimes I'm not the best judge of my own art, but I think I judged this one right.

It is wonderful. The petals have such a lovely rare color and look like they were made from wax.

Thank you so much, Anna...I really appreciate the feature! I was just visiting your journal and saw it. I also read about poor Tiggy and I'm hoping he'll pull through all the surgeries OK. I'll say a prayer for him. :pray:

Thanks! I really like this kind of flower...saw some red ones, too, but the pix didn't turn out as good as the white ones. :)

how odd they didn't turn out. but hey at least one of them did.

desmo100 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2008
Yeah, I wonder why they didn't turn out. I was rather disappointed with that overall soft look that many of them had. Hope the camera isn't on the fritz (or my eyes!).

Thanks, Lori! This is one of the few pix that turned out decently. I don't know why, but many of them were slightly blurry. Oh well, I'll be happy with one good one! Glad you like it, too. :hug:

It seems all photographers say that. They take about 100 pics and only a handful come out good. I take a handful of pic and maybe only a half of pic comes out right :lmao: Welcome! :hug:
