For David’s 50th, our good friends Maria & Michael sent us some quince branches. I had never heard of keeping quince branches as a cut flower, but they have turned out to be beautiful.
At first I was a bit intimidated by the size. There were about 5-6 branches and they were 6 feet tall. We didn’t have a vase big enough to hold them. I went to our local high-end florist who got us a vase and cut the ends for us – both cutting off the tips and splitting the bottoms to help them absorb water.
Yesterday they started blooming all over. I took some pictures of them in the light of the snowstorm.
Supposedly they will last until spring. I’m so impressed with them that I will have to add them to my list of great gifts to deliver to people.
