Q for

A little silliness using  the letter Q that I have hastily put together, having just returned from holiday.

Questions.  Do Querulous Quabs Quack and if they do would they drive you Quackers ? 

Q was a Quince that hung upon a garden tree;

 Papa, he brought it with him home And ate it with his tea. (Edward Lear). The quince.

 Quince, is generally grown in central and southern Europe and Asia. Also parts of the US, including Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Newbury, Massachusetts.

 Round about 1275 Edward 1 had Quince planted at the Tower of London, 
They have a tough outer skin which makes it difficult to peel so are better- baked whole.
 They can be used in jellies and jams, and are delicious served with roasted ham and cheese.


Quartz a favorite gemstone.























Why does the QUAIL have a stumpy little tail ?

  My thanks to Denise the Quintessence of ABCW,  also to Roger for doing what he does, Quietly, along with the help of  Quick-witted Leslie.

 Finally not forgetting the helpers who happily take their Quota of 'visits' with good grace.

 Best wishes, Di.abcw team.

  7. A great post, loved your silly little verses...I have a quince in my garden, but they don't get very big and wither away as they ripen. The blooms in the spring are gorgeous, though.

    1. Hello Wil,
      So pleased you enjoyed reading my post. my 7 year old grandson Christian was hanging on my arm whilst I was compiling it, he really giggled when we read Edward Lear's 'Quail' rendition, He's a very good reader and reads two books per day, so I was del;ghted that he could read this back to me.
      Best wishes,

  11. Hi, Di, good to see you back. Hope you and Husband had a great time. Yours is a fun post. I realized I've only seen squab on a plate never in flight. Now I'm curious to see what the bird actually looks like. I like to think that they quack to upset the ducks. hahaha Hugs to you.

      We had a great time such a lovely part of Wales, we've never stayed there before, only passed through on our way south with kids to the seaside. I am writing about it on next week's R post.
      best wishes n hugs,
