We gathered up some of the quinces last week - collecting the ones that had already fallen from the branches. The bucket of fruit has sat in the corner of the kitchen ever since then. I still have to decide what I'm going to do with them all - marmalade, chutney, roasted or pickled are all contenders. While the quinces await their fate, a few of them are being decorative in the living room. As the heating warms the room, they are adding a delicate rose/honey/citrus tang to the air - pffft, who needs any of these air freshener plug ins when you've got a bowl of quinces?!
Technically, these are not true quinces - these are Japanese quinces, aka Chaenomeles japonica.

I also have Junior Nature in the Home this week - my little one obviously wanted to join in with her decorative plate of banana pennies...!
