The Sumac on Wildflower Hill


October 10, 2016

Yesterday I took another walk on Wildflower Hill. I had looked forward to seeing how much the sumac had colored up since my visit in August. (See here and here for the August photographs.) These may not be the sumac species I’m used to seeing. The trees had red leaves, but it looked as if many leaves had fallen without turning color. Here’s the best of what I saw.

Update of October 10, 2016, late morning

My friend Mary Ellyn sent me this link to a relevant song, “When the Sumac is on Fire.”

  1. Very nice, especially the way the deep blue sky shows through.

  2. Beautiful colours. We had a couple of Sumacs in our old garden and they were a wonderful sight in Autumn. And I’ve just spotted, in the last few days, that there is one just up the road from here which is looking stunning at the moment – I must remember to visit (you’ve jogged my memory, Linda)
