The Heart of the Matter

IMG_2368

Flowering quince makes me feel philosophical – I can’t help comparing them to people’s hearts. Surrounded by thorns and branches, the beautiful, delicate flowers are not like other blossoms that can be picked, collected and placed in a vase. They’re best enjoyed left right where they are, well protected and fragile and fleeting.
