What's Blooming: Flower Quince
We have a raggedy looking flowering quince (Chaenomeles) in the shrub border near the chicken coop. It came with our house and needs to be pruned badly. Who ever pruned it did not cut the stems back to the ground, they just hacked them all off at the same height. Since it's a winter bloomer here, we'll prune it back severely this spring and let it grow back in a more natural form.
