Snowballs and lilacs

One of my garden dreams is bouquets of snowball viburnum, viburnum opulus compactus, with lilacs.  My snowball bush is gorgeous this year! I love the little green puffs of flowers that will continue to grow to about 3 inches and fade to white before fading back again to green and then brown. 

The new lilac bushes made it through the winter and this one is blooming nicely.  I can't decide whether I will like the white lilacs with the snowballs or the purple lilac, while the snowballs are still green. If this year is anything to go by, it will have to be green snowballs with white lilacs, or white with purple. Wonderful either way.
