Chaenomeles speciosa or Flowering Quince. I think this one is ‘Geisha Girl’. It’s a huge shrub here and very pretty just at the moment. I took the photo yesterday afternoon when I got back from the Spring Flower Show. Oh dear. Entries and attendance were both down and I felt bad about not entering anything. I could fully have won the class for Primroses and I’m sure my patterned socks would have beaten the only other knitted entry.
I see from Jane Brocket’s blog that she’s already picking large bunches of tulips from her garden. So far I have one in flower.
Tulip 'Cairo', gorgeous. Looks like another good gardening day so I must gee myself up to do some. I hate to say it but down here in the south we could really do with some rain.
