Shurb or small tree, has typical opposite leaves of Dogwood, with that familiar venation pattern.

I missed the showy bracts from earlier in the year, (google for images, they are lovely!) but was captivated by the fruits, which looked like round, knobbly strawberries. They are green, just turning to red here, taken back in August: and are apparently edible.
