these Spindler flowers don't look anything like those showy berries that develop in the Autumn either,

I came across several of these shrubs, which at first I thought were a Viburnum species, but they looked a little different, so I had a google for shrubs, and now I'm pretty sure the are Cornus sanguinea or Dogwood,
most of the google results showed them having bright red stems, but this is a winter occurrence, as far as I can tell, the stems being green the rest of the time.

we had a dogwood in a previous garden, and the stems on that one used to show bright red in the winter,
