Thanks,N3..the far one has yellow berries,and the nearest has red ones..another out of shot, has Orange ones,so plenty of colour when we need it most :o)

12 Jun, 2012

 

It looks so beautiful and much needed colour :o)

I think all the rain has helped,as they get very dry in the shadow of the wall..so it has done some good :o)

Beautiful....and not just the pyracantha

Thank you,Scottish..all the perennials are starting to fill out nicely..I have planted quite a few Cosmos I grew,in between,so looking forward to those :o)

Thanks Cinders...This front border is my favourite bit..I can go with the flow here..much more space to play with :o)
...........

Wow,Motinot.that is some compliment. thank you..:o) I bet they don't have a Bowling Green behind their walls ! :o)

Glad you clarified that for me Bloomer, even though you hadn't brought up food.....yet ;))

12 Jun, 2012

 

Lol...give me time Lil..give me time ! :o))

12 Jun, 2012

 

Well I'm cooking right now......
:))

12 Jun, 2012

 

I went to bed Lil,so hope you enjoyed your meal..:o) what was the 'special of the day 'then? ..

13 Jun, 2012

 

That looks fab, Bloomer... :))
And the wall's not bad looking either! But, I'm scared of pyracanthas........

13 Jun, 2012

 

Thank you..I love the dry stone wall too..why are you scared of them? ...they are harmless...apart from the thorns ! Lol.

13 Jun, 2012

 

Lol! Have you seen mine??
It's swallowing up one of the out-houses!! I'm too scared to go near it...;)))

Karen. maybe prune it hard this year and it will re-grow quite happily, have planted two especially for the birds.
B. you are going to have plenty of berries there.

13 Jun, 2012

 

looks very nice Bloomer :-)

13 Jun, 2012

 

I haven't seen it,Karen..but I'm sure you are brave enough to tackle it..a push over ,after your experiences in,trying to tame a wild'dog'! :o)
........
Thanks G.mage,and S.lad..lots of flowers for berries..they could do with a trim too,but don't want to spoil the later display..and they have put lots of growth on this year,even though they were trimmed back earlier on..

13 Jun, 2012

 

Very scary, Bloomer...!

I will have to get in about it this year, Gm...how hard can I be???
...but I think I'll let the berries set first...not that I'm putting it off or anything!! ;)

13 Jun, 2012

 

That would be better,I think ,Karen..although any non flowering stems could be pruned back almost anytime..I do that with mine,and it .seems ok..they are so tough anyway,as you will have noticed! Lol.

13 Jun, 2012

 

I've been putting it off for two years now, Bloomer...

But, this year it's for the chop...later...lol!

Have to organise a trailer to take it all away.....

13 Jun, 2012

 

ah,that will be Pyracantha phobia,then,Karen..start with a tiny bit,then work your way to a bigger bit ! I'm sure Alan Tichmarsh would put it much more eloquently than me :o)

13 Jun, 2012

 

Lol! Where are my loppers, now... ;)

13 Jun, 2012

 

very tricky pruning these, i used to just go for it every few years and hope for the best, not the right way i'm sure !!

13 Jun, 2012

 

Lovely pic Sandra :o)

14 Jun, 2012

 

Thank you,Terra..the white looks great in this gloomy weather..it lifts my spirits! :o)x

14 Jun, 2012

 

That is nice B.

18 Jun, 2012

 

I have one at the front of the house, near the front door and there are no thorns on it!!!!...sweet.
