Scatterdays Week 3 - Letter Q






Is our letter this week. The categories are:A plant, Night time, Something healthy and Something quick.













A Plant: This is our poor old quince tree, only two quinces could be seen this morning. In another week or so they will both be gone. The possums love them.














Night Time just had to be a quilt, this is one of my favourite quilts on the spare bed.








Something Healthy: Quinoa, I like to use this as a change from  rice or pasta. Makes a lovely roasted vegetable salad.












Finally Something Quick, couldn't go past my trusty old Quick Unpick, where would I be without it.







Next letter is T - Tasty, Tiny, Terrifying, Threads.

It's a shame the possums get to your quinces. I think quince jelly is the best jam! We have our quince wrapped in mesh at the moment to protect the fruit.

I'd love to have a quince tree. Have you tried worm tea? Great choice for quick unpick! It looks like it means business!

Thankfully we don't have possums down our way. We had a quince tree at my grandmother's when I was young, haven't tasted them stewed in years.

snap to the poor old quince..it seems as though many of us jumped onto that one. I love your night time quilt. Scraps are always my favourite

Great Q choices! Someone had suggested quince to me, but as I have never seen it, and don't even know for sure if it grows here in Florida, I had to pass by that one. Nice to see your picture of what it truly looks like. But darn those possums. Well, I can tell you that we have holly bushes here (something completely new to me) and I learned yesterday that when flocks of robin are migrating through the area, they can strip a medium-sized tree full of berries in less than 10 minutes!

Snap on 3 out of 4. Obviously great minds. Its the rosellas and lorikeets tht raid our tree.

Great photos for Q. Seems there are a few 'great minds' out there who think alike.

I wish I had a quince tree blow the possums I would net them I will have to try cooking the quinoa I have had it in salads. A bit like cous cous but gluten free .

I think I have quinoa in the house but did not try to find it. All my fruit has gone to the birds this year..think bush fires have sent them in.
A lovely lot of Q's
It is a test to prove I am not a robot!
