Quince flower

I like quinces.  They are one of may favourite fruits.  I even like the tangy taste of them raw.   The quince tree here is quite small. I planted it two or three years ago.  I have difficulty growing fruit trees because of the other large trees in the yard, but with the rosellas nesting in one of the trees and not a lot of alternative nest holes, I can't change that.  
Quince trees aren't really so much trees, as some kind of shrubby bush, and this one seems to be doing reasonably well.  This week the flowers came out.  They are lovely...  
.... one of the most lovely fruit blossoms that I've seen.
