Shining Fall Color

Although most trees and plants are still green, we have a first taste of fall in a hedge of native shining sumac (Rhus copallina). It is also called "flameleaf sumac" in the nursery trade. Taken on Portage Ave. along the Portage River in Three Rivers.

I think we are driving up the last week of October. I hope we don't miss all of fall. I really hope we don't get snow!

Oh everything else is still green, and the asters and cosmos and wildflowers are all still in bloom. I don't know why the shining sumac turned so red so early.
