Virburnum or Snowball shrub seeds

Viburnum or Snowball shrub is from the same family as Cranberry. Its berries are reputed to produce excellent jam and jelly. For me it conveys the fullness of summer with its beautiful berries. The berries stay for a long time and we use them to attract migrating birds in the late fall early winter. The fullness of summer is upon us and the harvest will soon begin. I like this time of year as it also provides a pause from garden work between the seasons. Yes, it is time to smell the roses.
