#Surrey365; Day 141. A Tinge of Autumn.

This is Viburnum opulus, or Guelder Rose. As well as being a stunning native tree (spectacular berries and vivid autumn colour) that’s fantastic for wildlife, it’s also a valuable herbal medicine. It’s folk name of Cramp Bark should give you a clue to its muscle relaxant properties.
