Signs of life

Oh, what a glorious day.  As I walk around Helen’s Haven, I see signs of life all around.  On the trees, shrubs, and barren ground.

    I think your unidentified shrub is a chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia). Of course, I could be wrong, but that happens so infrequently that Wall Street totally panics when it does.

  4. Steve, if you are right in identifying that shrub, I will be shocked!!! I have given you so little information. You amaze me.
