The summit of Troharis - 2nd April 2020

Now that Greece is in lockdown I can't drive anywhere to take daily photos so until the lockdown stops I'll provide you with two photos every day. The top one will be chosen more or less at random from my large catalogue.
The second one will be a photo diary of my backyard. It will be an interesting exercise for me: concentrate on subjects that are nearby and turn a restriction into an opportunity.

Quince flower

Close up of a quince flower. The quince tree or Cydonia oblonga is of special interest to Crete because it is said that it got its name from ancient Kydonia (modern day Chania), where cultivation and export were developed early. The Romans called the quince an apple from Kydon.
It originates from  the Middle East and Asia Minor and had already been introduced in Greece in the 7th-6th century BC. The fruit ripens in about October and is used for, among other things, excellent jams.
