Snow ball tree

The snow ball tree (Viburnum opulus) in our backyard is in full bloom with gorgeous white balls of flowers.  This year it has flowered so prolifically I've been able to bring some blooms into the house.



I thought I'd sneak in this photo of Bungee playing peek-a-boo!

How magnificent those snowballs Anne. Just wondering aloud..are they scented at all? Thanks for the recipe too. I love orangey things & really like the idea of the whole oranges in the mix x0x0x

I love that - really pretty :)

We've been warned that parts of the UK should see real snowballs by the end of the week - hoping it doesn't quite reach us!

snowballs were my first ever favourite flowers when I was just 5 as my granmother had them in her garden. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful photos. Cherrie

Those blooms are glorious, and how wonderful to have them in the house. The days are so grey here just now, really gloomy and dismal, this is just the kind of post I needed to cheer me up :)

This is just gorgeous Anne. Especially against that rich-coloured wall. Must be lovely to have it in the house, does it keep well? cheers Wendy

I have been rather slow in commenting on your blog and thanking you for your comment on mine, always lovely to know what people think of your writing and 'doings'. I love the photos of your snowball flowers, I too have them flowering at the moment, always seems to be about Melbourne cup Day. I have never thought of bringing them inside so will do the same here today, so think you for your idea! and I think you were so clever putting the photo of Bungee there too, a beautiful match! did you call him that because of his jumping and swinging I suppose on the curtains?! Love aubrey
