Another photo from last Sunday morning. These are pyracantha berries at a neighbor's house. I like them because they're orange and I'm used to seeing the red variety; there is a red cotoneaster nearby, similar to a pyracantha but with smaller leaves and no thorns. I would like one of these in our yard, but I've done nothing about getting one.
Seeing the bush covered in berries makes me think of fall. I wonder if it flowered and produced its fruit early this year because of our unusually warm and dry spring?
I did a post two Decembers ago about the differences between pyracantha and cotoneaster, with photos of each. Click here if you want to see it.
