Chinese quince recovered

Chinese quince, Pseudocydonia sinensis.

twenty months ago this tree got fire blight and almost died in the following summer. By now it has recovered nicely and the deadwood is unusual but makes the tree even more interesting. In three years it will have all the fine ramification again and hopefully have blossoms.
What have I learned? Never give up. A tree does not necessarily die from fire blight.
