This stunning pyracantha “turned my head” as I drove past it on my way home yesterday. Today in duller overhead conditions I went back to take some photos to share.
Pyracanthas are renowned for their brilliant berry displays in autumn. It is surprising to see such a brilliant show because we have not had many crisp autumn nights so far but whatever the reason, this specimen has burst forth into golden glory. It positively glows sitting alone with a dark fence behind it.
I really like the cartoons drawn by Michael Leunig. Here is an offering that is so relevant to life these days. The weather here was not that good for lying on the grass and gazing at the sky but I did watch the incoming cold front at lunch time and the variegated coloured clouds at dusk tonight. Charge up those batteries out in nature.
