When my family moved to a new house in a new city when I was nine, one of the most fabulous parts was the discovery of a snowball bush in our yard. Naturally we decided a snowball fight was in order. We’ve been having springtime snowball fights there since and it’s a tradition my kids have embraced completely.
The flower clusters are white and grow in round shapes that mostly stay until you throw them over and over and they shed white snowflaky flowers all over the place. They smell good too.
I can’t wait until the next crop of snowballs is ready. In the meantime, the kids have asked that we plant our own bush in our yard. We’ll have to see if deer like snowballs.
Life is good and filled with amazing possibilities, if you’re looking.
