High Bush Cranberry


Also known as Viburnum Opulus, the high bush cranberry shrub is a common sight Wisconsin woodlands. In the spring, fragrant white flower clusters adorn the bushes, and in the fall the leaves turn a beautiful magenta red. The berry clusters remain during the winter as food for wildlife. The berries of this shrub along Swan Road carried a mantle of snow after our recent blizzard, creating a pretty holiday postcard.

Looks like this could be your Christmas card design this year. Very festive.

This is such a pretty scene. But I'm glad it's your scene and not mine.

No more snow. I hope!
