Identification

Im looking for help identifying this shrub/tree. Initially I thought it was Elderflower so I've started making wine with the blossom. Now I realise it's not.  I would appreciate a positive identification before I throw it away. It smells quite good.

    Could be pyracantha if there are thorns on the branches, but would need a pic from further away.
    It's difficult to get a sense of scale.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • No thorns

    Never a good idea to eat or drink something if you don't know what it is!

    Also, elderflowers ,while not unpleasant, don't smell particularly good.

  • Pyracantha is edible. Just need to make sure it's not cotoneaster.
