I have run across this plant in my back yard when I moved in. Must be a young one. The neighbor has one that is behind his fence that is much larger and has white snowball like flowers on it. Any ideas on this one?

RE: Bushy plant with with Snowball like flowers

Looks like Sambucus canadensis or it's common name, Elderberry. I have several and I love them. When the seeds are ripe the birds devour them! If you google it you can find lots of interesting facts about this shrub. By the way, I really like your background city picture and the way it contrasts with the color pictures.
