Oh my! I was about to go to bed and I clicked on this photo without thinking about it. One look and I went down quick to pick it as my BOTD. LOL! Then I realized it was already BOTD, today!!! Just perfect in color and drama. And for spring too! Gets me in the mood.

I just love the color of this Quince! I have never seen one this color before, sure is a beauty. Spring is moving forward here slowly with plenty of Spring time blooms...But it's only 35 out right now. Outstanding photo

So beautiful! LOVE the color! Spring is taking too long to arrive this year so the photo is perfect for encouragement to all who don't live in "sunny Florida" or California.

We have them blooming right now all around town, I fell in love with this color, so much prettier than the common red ones. I bought one last year, it's still in a pot. Gonna go find it and plant it for sure this week!
