Branches covered in snowy white,
Red and blue berries later delight.
Thick scarlet leaves escape from my sight,
To return bright green in the spring’s sunlight.

In spring, I love seeing shrubs flower. One of the most beautiful is the native viburnum, Viburnum dentatum, that blooms right off my patio. The white flowers turn to blue berries in late summer, and are devoured by birds. I wrote this poem in honor of this very important native shrub. You can read more about it here in my garden post. The pictures here are of that wonderful viburnum that blooms profusely in my garden each year.
I leave you with a few additional words about wonderful viburnum. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
