Pyracantha ..Orange glow..

I've never seen as many flowers as it has this year..It seems to be the same for everyone..I pruned it back severely a couple of years ago.,and had the scratches to prove it ! :o(

It will look beautiful in fall as well with so many orange berry clusters.

Thank you Chris,and a Sidalcea next to it ,is just starting to flower,so it contrasts nicely :o)

Thank you Klahanie..I agree,it should look good this Autumn..I also have a red berried one,further to the left,,and I gave my neighbour a yellow berried one,to the right,which is huge this year..he needed something to cover up an unsightly drainage pipe..They are all in the same border,so we should have a lovely display .:o)

That's doing really well Sandra. I bought a new one this year having lost a previous one. So far, fingers crossed, it's doing well

Thank you Julia,This was one of the first things I bought,when we moved here 13 years ago,and I thought I was losing mine ..A lot of the leaves this year looked a greyish colour,,as though it had some kind of disease,then all of a sudden,they seemed to disappear,and it was a healthy green again ..phew!

Thanks Shirley..the flowers have all gone brown now,with the heat,but hopefully,it should be laden with berries..glad your cutting is doing well :o)

The birds will appreciate the berries in the Autumn. This is a lovely shrub but the thorns are wicked. We had a plant in our last garden, but not any room for one here.

I'm sure they will,Lindak..it's the only time we see Thrushes in our garden..I agree,the thorns are lethal..!

It is,Amy..and although I don't wish autumn on us yet,it will be lovely to see the berries,and the birds have plenty to go at,by the look of it :o)

It feels like autumn here today Sandra ,what happened to summer ????

26 Jul, 2015

 

Same here Amy...we were at Tatton Park flower show today,and although it wasn't really cold,we all felt miserable in the heavy rain,so we left at 1pm,as we had been there since 10am,and had enough by then..We found a pub for a nice Carvery,on the way home..that warmed us up nicely :o)

Sandra we were most impressed with the displays at Tatton.....were you? we were not there lol (on the TV)

They were really nice,Angela..but we didn't get to see all the outdoor ones,as it got so bad,so we left about 1pm..All the tents were so packed,but I managed to take quite a few photo's..One of the outside gardens,called 'Bring me Sunshine' is destined for a garden in the next village to us,as a memorial garden for a friend of my sister in law,who lost her husband last year,and had an input as to what she would like..It was Lindsay's first entry at a Garden show,after qualifying last year,and she got a Bronze..what an accolade for her,so I'm sure she will do well..I did take a photo,so when I get round to posting a blog,and photo's,you will see it ..hers was the last one we saw,as we didn't want to leave without seeing it :o)

Well done to Lynsay......quite an achievement, look forward to seeing your blog..
