From the Kitchen Garden: A Geisha Girl at the Torridon

Our Japonica quince as been flowering this month on the south gable of the potting shed. Chanomeles japonica quinces come in a wide variety of colours: lime green, white, pink and our own bright scarlet.

If you would like a painting holiday in the Highlands, there are plenty of worthwhile subjects for the artist around the Torridon gardens, including the quince and the bridges over the river. And there are many flowers that lend themselves to a touch of the Japanese screen print style. One of my favorites is a double pink flowered quince: Geisha Girl.
