Big plant?

One of the shrubby dogwoods, probably Cornus amomum or similar with those bluish fruits and opposite arrangement of leaves.

Hah, I learned two new things today. 1. Indeed, that is the Cornus amomum (Silky dogwood) and the berries also called "drupes". Thank you for the positive I.D. ViburnumValley.

You are quite welcome.

Keep up the quest for the elusive viburnums - there's bound to be a few out there.
