My daily picture – Firethorn (Pyracantha)

Firethorn (Pyracantha) is an ornamental plant, grown in gardens for its decorative flowers and fruit.  We use this plant to obtain the living fences that surround the green spaces of the city. Because of these orange fruits,  these fences look like on fire. Fruits are a good source of food for birds in winter

If there is a fence and you don’t know its purpose, don’t just assume there isn’t one and tear it down. Find out what the fence is intended to accomplish. You might see it needs to stay.”
