Red things

It feels like the spring is just around the corner, starkbierfest even closer and paddling season is coming again!!! :)

By the way, does anyone know how are these red things called? Any language is welcome!

Update by Kostas:
My good friend Kostya from Ukraine sent this answer to the question what those red things are called:

"These red things are very similar to traditional Ukrainian bush - калина (kalyna). Snowball Tree in English I guess. This bush is the national symbol of Ukraine. I believe that kalyna is the most poetized herb in our folklore. In the past kalyna was a mandatory participant of wedding ceremonies. Also kalyna symbolizes a beauty of young lady. Fruits of this bush are widely used in Ukrainian folk medicine since Middle Ages and (as you can see from photo) up to present days."
