My next door neighbor has a green thumb a mile long. I've seen her bring home dead flowers from K-Mart's 25 cent table and resurrect them into their full glory. She has a bush in her yard that must be at least 15 feet high now that blooms every April with the most beautiful small snowball like blossoms. Each "snowball" can sit in the palm of your hand and has tight, perfectly white flowerettes. No fragrance tho. Trudi doesn't know the name of this bush, tho. It was just something she planted years ago. It drapes elegantly over the fence into my yard, which I consider a real gift. Today, I finally sent photos to my son, who just happens to be a horticulturalist at OK State University, in hopes that he can identify it. If not, I guess I can find the local co-op extension office in my county and see if they can identify it. Barry thought it might be a viburnum, but I don't think so. Whatever it is, it's glorious and I just wanted to share one photo with my blog friends!
