Snowballs in spring

I was so excited to see my viburnum opulus compactum covered in snowballs this year.  This is the fourth year since planting a tiny bareroot twig, and the past two years there have only been a few blossoms.  These greenish flower heads will continue to grow and turn white.  I work at finding the green to white, or white to green flowering plants like this one.  Now the big question will be to cut or not to cut.  Since I see them right out my office window, I think probably not.  Too bad the lilacs are just a couple weeks ahead; I have seen gorgeous bouquets of lilacs and viburnum.
