March 2015 Tree Following - we begin again

Here we are in March again, a full year on from when I first started following my quince tree.  I looked back to last year to see whether  I think it is further on or late compared to last year.
I think it looks pretty much the same.
This quince 'Vranja' is a delight of a tree.  It starts to leaf up before the apple and the medlar and it keeps its leaves longer as well.
If it was not for one tiny little flaw I would call it a perfect fruit tree.  It is but a trifling issue, a mere speck on horizon.  I do not ask much of this tree, but I would really like a quince this year please.

No really - I do want one, let this be the year of the quince.

Meanwhile, I turn and look to the medlar, that has medled every year since planting....
.... and I tell it to get wriggle on and think about getting some leaves.

Thanks to Lucy for hosting this meme, there are many other trees to follow here.


  1. I talk to my trees, too!
    Have a great day!

  2. The more you talk the more quinces I think, ehhhh, I hope.
    Hope you also have such a lovely sunny Sunday, like we have today.

  3. Beautiful buds. Looks to be a very nice tree. I hope you get your wish for a quince!

  4. I was only looking at my quince yesterday and thinking it was #QuinceWatch time again. Fingers crossed for yours to fruit this year.

  5. I think fruit on a fruit tree is a reasonable ask. Wonder if we'll still be tree-following in twenty year's time and how sizeable your quince and medlar crop will be by then.
