Western Snowberry on Ice!

The Western Snowberry (Symphoricarpos occidentalis) scattered throughout the central Alberta prairies was certainly living up to a portion of it's name lately!  Dusted in wet snow and ice perhaps one should consider making Snowberry Ice Wine?  LOL!  Hmm ... on second thought, I think we'll leave them for the wildlife!  The Blackfoot Indians used the fruit as 'famine fruit' and boiled the fruits to make a diuretic for horses!
