Sam and I bought a bush this summer!
I've always wanted a bush that would have
red berries in the winter.
I grew up with holly bushes in Virginia,
but our bushes would NEVER grow any berries,
red or otherwise.
I've always liked the look of a red berry bush
at Christmas time.
So we visited Moon Valley Nurseries
last summer to get a bush that would grow
We came home with a Pyracantha (Santa Cruz)
bush (also called a Firethorn for its ½'' long thorns)
that was getting ready to bloom with clusters of
white flowers, that would then turn into
In late Fall they are supposed to turn into
Only now after reading up on Pyracantha
did I learn that they come in different verities,
some have orange berries, some red.
Other sites say red berries in the winter.
None mention having orange berries for Halloween
that turn into red berries for Christmas.
Which, by the way, would be super cool!
I do hope they are still changing into red,
however, Fall is my favorite time of the year
so if they are in fact orange, that wouldn't be
At least the pumpkins are extremely
happy with the color.
This little pumpkin was a new purchase
at Walmart this month for $7.99,
I just love those teeth.
Hope your having a wonderful October,
thanks for stopping by
and happy haunting!
