This shrub is in the same family as the more well known Bridal Wreath which cascades down. These are like fuzzy cream snowballs and they are blooming now as is the other more well known spirea.

Great shot of the Japanese Spirea Kathy - this flower is everywhere in my area and while I was out today at the peony patch, I shot a series of these flowers but did not like the quality of my images after I downloaded them - Great Capture BTW!!!!!

Kathy, certainly do resemble snowballs. Maybe they also resemble cotton plants.

Kathy, I agree with you about the resemblance of Bridal Wreath blossoms, but to me the Japanese Spirea is slightly finer. I've in my garden a variant of a Japanese Spirea. Due to construction work in my garden, I had to prune it back enormously. As a result, it 's now growing again and has hardly flowered this spring. Looking at your beautiful photograph, I hope it will return to an equivalent condition.

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

I was at the park last week watching you take your photos. After you left I thought the flower looked like goat cheese and had a sample. It wasn't bad. They say I'll be out of the hospital in a few more weeks.
