Tree following -'It came off in my hand mum'

We are now at that tense time of the year.  The frosts are now hopefully over, though there is still a chill in the evening air at times.
The quincelets are forming, they can be seen as little bulges.
This one seems to be doing quite well, I breathe gently when I am near it.
There is also still blossom appearing, this is very good news.
This quincelet looks hopeful.

But don't touch them or they fall off.
It reminds me of when I was younger and if I had fallen over or such like and said to my father 'it hurts when I do this, he would unfailingly reply 'then stop doing it'.  Every time I touch a quincelet it falls off, so I have stopped touching them.

More positively there is sign of growth as the tree has new shoots forming.
Every year the tree gets a bit more mature, the more hopeful my quest for a quince gets. I'm keeping my fingerscrossed.
