What says Spring more than a the gorgeous bloom of the Flowering Quince
Arriving home this evening I was determined to make the best of the rare warm sunshine and get some spring cleanup done around our home. As I graded our gravel driveway I noticed my wife shooting pictures of the project with her little Panasonic Lumix. When I shut the tractor off to chat with her I noticed that our flowering quince has burst into full bloom today. Of course I could have went to the house to retrieve a DSLR but with her little point & shoot so handy I set it on macro zoom to capture my first blossom of the year.
that is lovely!!!
Beautiful.This bright flower has a way of brightening a day.Thanks.
I see spring has sprung there, too. Nice photo.
And a nice capture it is! Very beautiful.
Gorgeous flower, Coy! Thanks for sharing.
Very nice, Coy. :)
"Country Captures" has been included in this weeks Sites To See. I hope you like the image I featured, and I hope this helps to attract many new visitors here.
Hi Coy linked to you in "Nature sites" at earth sky sea http://www.ourearthskysea.com/
Lovely! You can get some very nice macros with a point and shoot. I use mine quite a bit so I can leave my zooom lens on my DSLR.
Is that the same thing as "Cardinal Bush"? It looks like it - if so, I never knew it had another name!
Very nice, Coy!
Flowering Quince is the name of the bush. I don't know where the name cardinal bush came from; perhaps it was a regional name that our family used.
