The closest we've gotten to snow

 A friend's front yard is loaded with Snowberries, Symphoricarpos rotundifolius.  What a mouthful.  So is the family name, Caprifoliaceae. That's the Honeysuckle family.   Up close, you can see they're shriveling and decomposing, and will soon drop their seeds, but from a short distance they appear as shiny white globes and are very photogenic when everything else in the vicinity is wintery brown and grey.
A view of another cluster accented by its proximity to some evergreen leaves.
