  13. Oh I have a tear in my eye ....... our beloved next door neighbors moved away back in the fall and the new neighbors cut down the beautiful quince tree that once flowered and produced the most amazing little furry quinces. Thank goodness I took pictures of the tree and all it's goodies last summer. I'm trying to like these new neighbors ..... trying hard to.

  15. That's really early right Trina? To be flowering? My Magnolia is budding and I worry because temps are supposed to drop down here this weekend into the fourties. So crazy.

  16. What a beautiful photo! I too love Japanese Quince - I am forcing branches of quince into bloom in the front porch urns...stuck the branches in the potting soil and they are just beginning to open up.

  17. These branches are not from our yard. And things outside are still very quiet...and will be for awhile. So forcing branches to bloom inside is a favorite mid-winter treat.

  20. Oh the branches are beautiful. I just read you forced them. Good because I was worried about mine not blooming yet. How do you do so much Trina? You are amazing! You and Rie from Home and Harmony should get trophys for keeping a classic clean home while raising children. :)

  28. My flowering quince are done. But they didn't look quite as gorgeous as yours in that terrific pitcher.

    I'm about to force some magnolia. They always make me feel like spring is around the corner.

  30. Thank you for the tutorial on forcing branches. I was just speaking to a friend about this the other day. I love the look of branches or foliage as an alternative to {just} flowers. We are starting to see buds however we are a couple months from spring - in fact snow is in the forecast..

  34. I'll have to try forcing some of our quince.

    We also have an old farmhouse. We'll be renoing forever.

  35. Trina, thank you for writing and photograping your farm house life for this blog. I so enjoy reading it. I am a newcomer, and have, on occasion, scanned part posts.

    Based on some of your older posts, I thought I'd pass on a handy tip about tulips. These are my favorite flowers. They do indeed continue growing after being cut so I always cut them an inch or so shorter than I really want them. After a few days of 'vase growth' they can begin to get a bit leggy and floppy. While parrots tulips look terrific flopping, other single varieties sometimes lose the arrangement's shape after a few days. I find if I slide two copper pennies into the bottom of the vase, tulips perk right up and stand straighter.

    Try it this Spring, it works! Only with tulips.

  36. Lovely early blooms!

    Here is San Diego, we feel like Winter skipped over us entirely. But, I enjoyed your photos of the snow and elks, and now the quince.

  38. Stunning!

    So....You won't be surprised if you walk in...and just find me hanging out in your bathtub?

  39. Trina, I love your blog and your terrific aesthetic sense!
    I am surprised to see an advert in the middle of the screen all amidst your beautiful tasteful photos. Do you think the ad can be moved to the margin? :)
    thanks & loving your home renovation,
