Post subject:  Pyracantha - Fall display of berries

This is my "Miracle Tree". One winter it froze in -20c weather for almost 3 weeks. The heater in the cold frame tripped off and did not reset while I was on vacation. Thinking it was dead I threw it on the trash pile. In the Spring I saw a minute patch of green. It was alive. That was 4 years ago. Now, after drastic pruning and lots of prayers it is more beautiful than ever. The berries will turn almost fluorescent in the coming weeks. Against the deep green leaves it is a spectacular site, Hope you enjoy this picture.
Regards,
Scott Clark
