Firethorn Blooms by Pamela Blaies

Firethorn Pyracantha is a type of climbing vine that has huge thorns that sting for a while if you get pricked by one. I have a 25 foot row of them along our fence line and I see them from my kitchen window. I enjoy the view when every spring they are covered in beautiful white blooms and in the fall they are covered in little clusters of bright red berries. But boy do I hate pruning time - OUCH!

I love to share my art and inspiration. Click HERE to sign up for my email newsletter and receive a free gift of postcards.
