Pyracantha firethorn

Pyracantha may not be the most exciting of plants. To be honest it’s a bit of a bruiser of a bush. It is a thorny brute that will not think twice about shredding my skin should I dare to approach with my snips / secateurs. 

Yet when I see Pyracantha at this time of year, trained around a gate like this in a local park, I forget what a thug it is and instead stop to admire its generous display of berries.

My Saturday smile for this weekend. I hope you are enjoying yours. D.
