I would like to plant spring-blooming shrubs to complement my spring bulbs. Would you recommend the quince for this purpose? There are several quinces that will work well with your bulbs. The flowering quince (Chaenomeles speciosa) produces outstanding white, pink, or red flowers in early to mid spring on upright 6- to 8-foot plants. If you were looking for a medium-sized, dense shrub that could function as a screen or barrier, I would select this plant. There should be several cultivars available through local garden centers.

Isaiah Black threw a go-ahead 24-yard touchdown pass to Micah Till with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left, and Wise's defense held off a furious late drive by Quince Orchard to capture its first Class 4A football state championship with a 12-7 victory Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Black did not attempt a pass in the first half as the Pumas (13-0) from Upper Marlboro stuck to their run-heavy offensive script, but the junior took over at just the right time in a game controlled by two dominant defenses.

By all rights last fall, Doug Woerner, my downtown farmers' market late-season quince source, should have been feeling the love. The October 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Living had an article on quince, with several simple recipes. But not even the blessing of that well-known purveyor of "good things" helped move many pints or pecks of the fruit off Woerner Orchards' market table. I was, and still am, one of Woerner's only quince customers. I can't wait for his quince, with its knobby shape, glo-green color when not ready and almost fluorescent-yellow tone when ripe.

The power, size and speed of the Henry A. Wise football team ended Meade's dream season with a nightmare. After two surprising road playoff victories over then-No. 4 Arundel and then-No. 6 Old Mill, No. 5 Meade hoped to keep rolling in the Class 4A state semifinal Saturday afternoon. But Wise used its bulk to take control early and steamroll the visiting Mustangs, 40-0. Wise (13-0) advances to the Class 4A state final Friday at M&T Bank Stadium against Quince Orchard, who edged No. 3 Westminster, 21-19, in the other state semifinal Friday night.

Until we moved to an old house on two patchwork-planted acres, I had never seen a flowering quince. When I first inspected them in June, I was underwhelmed. Each was a thicket of twiggy, green-leafed branches armed with lethal spikes like something out of Br'er Rabbit's briar patch. Expendable -- or so I thought. Then I tried to extract one. "To pull it out, you need to dig a big enough hole to get a chain around it and hook the chain to a pickup," says Brent Walston, owner of Evergreen Gardenworks in Kelseyville, Calif.

In a season where everything had gone right, the Westminster football team had put itself in position to win its biggest game in years. If the Owls could make a field goal on the game's last play, they would defeat perennial power Quince Orchard and advance to their first state title game since 2005.  But after 48 minutes of football, a missed field goal signaled the end of Westminster's dream season.  Justin Cohen's 37-yard field goal...

No. 3 Westminster finally ran into a team that could stifle its prolific passing offense. The Owls' struggled against a Quince Orchard defense that was more athletic, better able to cover their stellar corps of receivers than the previous teams they had met in the playoffs and put a lot of pressure on senior quarterback Deryk Kern, who was sacked four times. The Cougars used that defense and good special teams play to power their 21-19 win in Friday night's Class 4A state semifinal football game before a standing-room only crowd at Westminster.

COLLEGE PARK - -Severna Park shortstop Kyle Convissar led off with a single Friday afternoon and the Falcons never stopped hitting, as they blew out Quince Orchard, 11-1, in the 4A state championship game behind a one-hitter by senior ace Dylan Taylor. "To be honest, I was thinking about this game all day," said Taylor, who will attend Charlotte next year. "Now, to be the first team at our school to win the 4A championship, we're feeling pretty good about now. When we got that first hit and that first-run lead in the first inning, it made it a lot easier to pitch."

CHESTERTOWN - Getting scored on in the first six minutes of yesterday's state Class 3A field hockey championship game might not have been a bad thing for No. 2 Fallston. The Cougars responded to the early deficit with three straight goals and went on to a 4-3 victory over Atholton at Washington College for their second straight title and their 11th overall. The seven goals were the most in a Maryland field hockey state title game. Atholton came in as the underdog, but the Raiders weren't intimidated as Kim Markovitz fed Alexandra Durso for the opening goal.

With both C. Milton Wright and Quince Orchard unwilling to give ground on defense, the deciding factor in last night's Class 4A girls soccer championship was which team had the poise to put home penalty kicks. Quince Orchard proved one better. With goals from Kayla Clarke, Emily D'Italia and the decider from Maureen McMeekin, the Cougars from Montgomery County came away with the state title. It's the first time the Maryland public schools have gone to penalty kicks to decide a state crown.
