Spring Quince

Walk

The morning air was cool and damp, but Guttersnipe and Mudlark are impervious to the cold…

.

.

.

.

Prickle

…fortunately they are also impervious to thorns, and nipped over the Quince Tree’s chicken-proof fence…

.

.

climb

…and then shimmied up it’s trunk!

.

.

clamber

Out in the branches they found…

.

.

Bud

…beautiful plump fuzzy green swirled buds!

.

.

Dance

They did a happy dance in the tree…

.

.

Dream

…and went home to dream of quince blossoms, and tarts, and fruit, and nectar.

  1. Oh how sweet! The chicken proof fence caught my attention. I can see why they wouldn’t want to make their way through it. Happy quincing! Looks like the first step has been confirmed-BUDS!

  2. Wonderful characters, these two – so lively, uplifting. (It truly is amazing how expressive the body language of little Hitty’s can be – thank you!) I also appreciated your live chicken-proof fence …

  3. I loved seeing them dance in the quince tree….so sweet. Glad they are such tough little girls, able to confront chilly weather and thorny vines! Intrepid is the word for this duo.
