Flowering Quince

This flowering quince was an Easter gift from my folks.  It has a gorgeous coral color.  Later there will be fruit that can be used for jelly.   Hmm not only a beautiful plant but one that bears something sweet as well.

Are not those blossoms just begging to be painted?  What do you think?


Speaking of painting I just could not resist gathering a few of these pansies.











 They make such pretty subjects.   Ones I never tire of capturing in a sketch.

It was so nice of you to take a moment to visit.   Hope you have a lovely week.

  1. Many years ago one of my school parents dropped off a quince from one she divided. It is a spring favorite. Enjoy! I always love seeing your sketches. Have a grand week. Bonnie

  2. Hi Debbie,
    Of all the plants and flowers I am familiar with, quince is new to me.. How pretty it is, and what a thoughtful gift.
    What a beautiful watercolor of the pansies! I just love your artwork.
    Enjoy your week,
    fondly,
    Penny.

  3. I love Quince and pansies. Your photo is lovely but not as beautiful as your artwork. It has a wonderful sensitivity which beats a photo anytime.

  5. Very beautiful! Our quince (both a red and peach) are about done flowering and we are heading toward summer heat. It's such a pleasure to have a prolonged spring through your beautiful images and words!

  6. The quince plant is beautiful! I have never seen one before and what a bang for your buck (flowers and fruit)! Love your pansy paintings; how gorgeous they would be framed!

  9. Lovely pansies in the painting and IRL! Love the quince plant...what a marvelous color. I don't think I've seen a quince plant before or tasted quince. Enjoy the rest of the day. Rain is headed this way for the next few days. I guess we need it.

  17. ...gorgeous work on the pansies, there are some stunners about at the mo, was looking at some pale blue ones at a friends house yesterday, they had really dark blue centers with white splashes, I meant to take a photo, but got distracted by their cheeky Jack Russel, insisting on play, then it rained, and I forgot all about them, doh!... love the quince too, very different to our big tree quinces, I make quince and cardamom jelly, very yummy, don't know if cardamoms would work with this sort of quince, but could always give it a try. Happy days... :-D

  19. That flowering quince is so pretty! I love your sketch of pansies; they're one of my favorite subjects, too. Those ruffled petals with all the folds, twists and turns...

    Blessings,

  23. Those paintings in your sketchbook look fantastic! You have a green thumb in two ways, both in growing the beautiful blooms and in portraying them on paper!

  28. Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
    Your sketches of pansies look beautiful. Pansies are not easy to paint. You capture very well their colors.
    Have a nice day.
    Here, in the region of Paris, it has rained and rained and it is not warm.
    Merci encore
