Snowballs In Spring

As a child a small Snowball Bush grew in our garden, it’s white flower ‘snowballs’ never lasting long – too tempting for my siblings and me to pick – the closest thing to a snow ball fight you could have in Sydney.

I now have one in my garden that is big enough to call a tree.

I love the soft green shades of the flowers before they turn completely white – and I still can’t resist picking the odd one to throw!
