After the storm...the harvest

The blusteriness of the past few days has subsided & left everything in the garden battered. Today we had torrential rain, brilliant sunshine & then hail. The Japanese Anemones were horizontal so, dodging the raindrops, I brought some inside.


Nipping out to get some milk, I spotted these precious windfalls (Japanese Quince- Chaenomeles) strewn across the pavement.


I shall follow Sue's advice to grate them, add sugar & vodka & then just sit tight & wait until Christmas to sample...

Hope your vodka turns out well. Mine are tree quinces -cydonia oblonga which is a different plant.
