Elderberry Trees

Aren't they pretty?
Aren't they pretty?

This morning as I was going for a walk, I was looking at the elderberry trees, or sambuca as they are known here.  With their white flowers, they looked like pieces of lace had been thrown over the trees. I believe they are often considered a pest but they certainly look beautiful and the Italians use the berries in making Sambuca. So...not all bad!
