	Arnhild and others,

I wonder if the wild elderberry bushes I have growing almost like weeds in and
around our farm grove (part of which is slowly becoming my "hosta 
glade") could have been brought here by Norwegian imigrants?  The 
red-berried are the most invasive and the prettiest.  They are 
blooming right now and the red berries
are veru pretty until the birds get them.  They like them...I've 
tried them but they have no flavor...also didn't kill me!  The 
black-berried ones bloom later and taste wonderful...great pies and 
also a sauce for ice cream.  A lot of work because they are so tiny 
and all the little stems have to be picked off.
southern Minn. (almost a little Norway...except flat as a pancake)
