Walking around today I really appreciated the colors of fall. Though a lot of things have browned and withered with the first hard frost last week, there are still a lot colors around. Here's my rainbow...
|Smooth Sumac leaves|
We have a whole grove of Sumac trees that came up this year along the road. My neighbor explained that they are not the poisonous variety but rather, something called Smooth Sumac. You can harvest their cones and make Sumac "lemonade" from them.
This maple tree is in our front yard, near the driveway. We may try to tap it for sap this spring.
Another lovely shade of coneflower.
