Festive Colour

I thought it would be nice to add a little festive cheer to my Six on Saturday post this week. Despite the rather grey days of December there are some beautiful berries and seed pods around the garden this week.

Some I am sure will be cut for Christmas decorations whilst the remainder will be enjoyed by the birds. The Redwings have arrived in large numbers and are now regular visitors.

One: Pyracantha


Two: Variegated Holly


Three: Hypericum


Four: Cotoneaster salicifolius ‘Rothschildianus’


Five: Iris foetidissma


Six: Cotoneaster X watereri ‘Cornubia’

  1. You have the very best food for the birds. We have a good patch of pyracantha along the back wall of the house and it has been stripped of berries long ago by the blackbirds. It was a beautiful but very fleeting display. I love Cotoneaster rothschildiana, one I don’t grow, but admire in a nearby garden when I visit.
