Snowberry on Ontario @ 26th

Not for humans to eat, these white berries are one of the few bright spots of winter interests in our gardens at this time of year.  You can see this indigenous plant growing under forest canopies near Squamish and in many places other than General Wolfe Elementary.  Ours are located in our Bee & Butterfly friendly garden - so I guess it could be a Bird Friendly garden too, as some ground birds will feed on them (however, I have yet to see a quail, pheasant or grouse in our urban habitat :-)
