Redosier dogwood (Cornus sericea) fruits (pg 82 in Rose).
Branches are red, leaves bright green. This plant blooms May through July (small white flowers). Birds like the fruits (and help spread the seeds).

Cow Parsnip (Heracleum lanatum) fruits (pg 5 in Rose)
These plants were enormous, some at least 6 feet tall. They bloom in the summer (May through August), but we didn't see any in flower. Many were bending over, they were so heavy with fruits. Yes, each one of the ovals above is a fruit. As I've said before, the fruit is the thing with the seed(s).
