I’m still dreaming of snow but until it arrives I’ll have to settle for snowberrry!
A few years ago we planted some common snowberry shrubs and they thrived – filling in empty spaces with bright green leaves and tiny flowers in the spring. But in the winter the tiny snowball berries take centerstage after the leaves are gone.
I was hoping to catch the tiny water droplets as they fell from the berries but even as the wind blew and the branches swayed they hung on tight. Water droplet photography is a thing but I doubt I have the patience to pursue it.
Wow so pretty. I haven’t seen that before. I wonder if we have it here in Australia?
Thanks so much! It’s native here in the US. I just googled it and it looks like there may be a variety that grows down under too! 😊
That’s amazing! I’ve never heard of snowberries. Are they edible?
They’re pretty common here. Not good for humans to eat but birds like them. 😊
I have never heard of that plant, Susanne. Great photos of it.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks Pete. I always like seeing those little white berries in the winter.
What fabulous photos for today 😀
Thank you so much! 🙂
Wow!! I’ve never seen those in Hawaii. That’s super cool!
Thanks for your comment! 😊
I’ve never seen or heard of these before. Truly a snow berry. It would be fun to see them in actual snow.
Hopefully we’ll get snow this season and I’ll try to include a picture in a post. 😊
I had forgotten about that plant. I never knew its name, but was quite familiar with it.
I always enjoy it during the winter. And apparently the birds do too. 🙂
Never heard of a snowberry, wonder if it would grow over here in eastern Washington? It’s very pretty.
