I have had a very electronic challanging last couple of months. It seems like everything I touched broke. Finally, I think have all my electronic issues behind me and I can start regulary blogging again.
You see, it's all the children's fault!!!!!!!!!!!! They moved out and left their poor mother helpless. Hey, I never had to learn to turn on the TV because it was always on. No one bother to tell me that you could no longer just pull a knob to turn the TV on. Now you need 3 remote controls to operate it. It seems the only electronic item in my home I learned to master was the garage door opener.
Then came the phone issues. Now that the kiddo's are on their on, we needed to change our phone plan. Along with the new phone plan came a new high tech phone. Well, let me just say I could single handedly set women's lib back a hundred years. Let's just say that it only took a week to have me going back to AT&T begging for my old razor phone back. No such luck, gone, gone, gone. I have kinded learned how to operate the new phone, so if you call me please be a little patient with me for I may have to call you back or I will say hello a couple of times.
The camera and PC, we will not discuss. Only me operating a camera would it send sparks shooting out and shocking my hand. Maybe, It had something to do with the water coming out of the waterhose I was holding. Thank goodness for the sweet little guy at Target that took pity on me and instructed me step by step on my new items. I was so confident that I was on my way to electronic freedom, I let him sell me a new flip camera. Now, the new problem is I just have to wait until the kids come home for spring break to teach me to use the flip.

I really do not look forward to winter and greatly miss my blooming flowers. Although, I have learned that every season has it beauty and Flowering Quince has become one of my favorite winter plants, because this plant allows me to have blooms inside my home in the winter. Now, that I have discovered the beauty of Flowering Quince, I can hard wait for late winter to arrive. I enjoy going outside to cut a few budded branches to bring back indoors and placing them in a vase of water to force open to bloom. It is so exciting to watch them open. My kitty cats like them too!!! They find them great scratching post for their necks.
Flowering Quince can grow in sun or part sun, maturing from 3 to 4 feet tall. This shrub leaves out after blooming. I recommend planting away from the house, in a prerennial bed where it can be used as a background plant.
If you love a vintage garden look or love cut flowers, you have to have this plant. Gauranteed not to disappoint.
