Pretty in a pod

At the Pauatahanui burial ground last Friday I spotted these colourful berries popping out of their papery pods.
The plants seemed to be bulbs of some sort but I cannot be sure about that.

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.

It positively glows sitting alone with a dark fence behind it.
