One of the great things about being a florist is it really lets you get to know a plant in a fairly intimate way. - they become like old friends. Take the lovely quince. Oh quince, how we love you every time we meet. We love your thorny self. We love your coral flowers that make us feel like we are living in a Japanese painting. And we absolutely love, love how your flower color changes so radically when we bring you inside. How you go from that brilliant coral to the most washed out of pinks. I love that quirk of your personality - So happy to see you again.
