Quince


The quince tree outside our door is in bloom and attracting an endless parade of birds. A pair of hooded orioles frequents the fuscia colored blossoms. Josh has been trying to get pictures of them but they keep flying away. An Anna's hummingbird named Francis flits and chirps all day long and drives kitty crazy with bird catching desire. Josh put half an orange in the tree for the orioles to eat, they ignored it. The orange did attract a blue jay. Here's a picture of our local possum taken a two winters ago. In one of the worst storms of the winter something made us look outside and there was this silly possum up the quince tree. -barb
