Wintergreen, Sheep Laurel, and Lowbush Blueberry

Just to the right of the post is a small, low plant called checkerberry or wintergreen, which carries its bright red fruit through the winter.  Just to the left of the post is a slightly taller plant called sheep laurel.  Both are in the Heath Family.  Come back in the early summer to see their different blossoms.
