Pyracantha 'Golden Sun'


Pyracantha 'Golden Sun' (Pyracantha angustifolia (Fire Thorn) 'Golden Sun')

Found the label in the undergrowth at the base of the plant. Thought it was lost in the long distant past. Flowering in June

they are more of an orange colour really but they dont last for long as the birds strip them very quickly.

Aye used to have a hedge running the length of house we lived in one real hard winter the whole thing stripped by fieldfares and redwings in a couple of days.

we had a waxwing feeding on it last year as well as fieldfares. today we had a great spotted woodpecker on the nuts today. first one for months. so excited but couldnt find the camera.

Whole flocks ..even more jealous .Bimbling a lovely term describes sort of aimless meandering perfectly.
