I see that the Quince can easily double as an ornamental tree in the garden, and of course quince jelly is great as a condiment to a cheese board, along with chutney etc… :-)
I'm wondering if your hobbies are both ornamental plants/shrubs, and making lots of jars of jam, preserves and/or conserves, and jelly for cheese. :-)
Or perhaps you just have something really non-mainstream or non-suburb as a hobby. Perhaps you picked some flowering quince and used them as a flower arrangement to remind you that winter (both literal and allegorically) is passing?
I must consider picking up a non-mainstream hobby, although explaining about haiku to two over-zealous police officers was both amusing (no guns on their part were involved) and sad, that as a consolation they could have helped run a poetry competition at their police station. Ah, hobbies, and the fear of ones that are 'different'! :-)
