After having two homes for a number of years, one in Texas the other in Colorado, we have simplified our lives. Coming to you from only Texas now, but not really. We are world travelers…so stay with me.

The Curved Fence
I am not sure what caught my eye first, the unusual curved fence, or the pretty Pyracantha bushes heavy with berries.
The fence is in front of a rather large private home. The Pyracantha bushes are a favorite of landscapers here in the south. They are fast growing evergreens, that can reach 20 ft. (6M), and produce berries in the Fall and Winter.. I've always thought that the berries were poisonous to humans, but I guess there is a species of Pyracantha that you can make jelly from the berries. We had a bush like this in front of our home in Houston that had orange berries. It was so pretty in the Fall. They also produce thorns, making them a bit difficult to prune.
Welcome. This may seem like a journal instead of a blog, and I won’t argue with that.I tend to write about and photograph any and everything that I think is interesting. Thanks for stopping by and be sure and say hi. Janey
