I am following a tree: Quince in May 2015

I am following a tree

I am following a quince tree in my garden in Mannheim/Germany.

The last month has been quite a month for the quince tree that I am following. It is now a ‚proper‘ tree with fully developed leaves and full of life. It really is nice to look at as well. I would not have imagined it to be so lovely. That is probably due to the fact that I am not too keen on the quince fruits.

However, see for yourselves: This is the tree in March and today:

 But we have missed one of the most important instances in the tree’s life cycle this year: the flowering. The quince tree is the very last fruit tree in my garden to go into flower. Peach and plums are long over, even the apple has started before the quince. But the quince has especially attractive flowers, so it might well be worth the while.

As of today, small fruits have already formed. Yes, we can see mini quince!

Once more I must add, with the tree following I am really seeing so many things around my tree that sure would have gone unnoticed otherwise. One of these extra facts is that the leaves do not seem to mold very well. I keep finding them everywhere whenever the wind has blown some more out of their hiding places. Anyone ever noticed that, too?

  1. Wirklich hübsch das Bäumchen, obwohl ich dir zustimme, dass Quitten eher meh sind. Wie hast du eigentlich das schicke Layout mit den runden Bildern gemacht? *neidisch rüberschiel*

    • Toll, oder? Einfach in den Settings für die Galerie wählen, ist quasi mitgeliefert. Ich dachte, ich schaue mir mal an, welchen Effekt das so macht. 😉
      Hast du den Bienenhintern entdeckt? Das war witzig zu fotografieren.

  2. I love the way you used the mosaic to highlight the blooms. And what a contrast in the tree between March and May!

  3. That’s quite some contrast between April and May – not just with the tree but with the whole view. It’s exciting, I find, suddenly to see the little fruits. Interesting about the leaves.
