Festival of Leaves #7

rhus typhina tree (stag’s horn sumach)

We don’t get a lot of vibrant colour in the autumn months here in the west county, so this gorgeous splash of red in Penlee Memorial Garden certainly catches the eye.

If you want to join in with celebrating the colours of autumn then take part in the Festival of Leaves 2019 hosted by Dawn Miller.

  1. It’s a lovely tree. I’ve seen them here but didn’t know what they were. Are they the right species to harvest the berries to make sumac I wonder?

  2. A lovely shot. This tree grows wild where my sweetheart lives so some people think of it as weedy. It always amazes me that anything so beautiful can be thought of as a weed. This particular one doesn’t seem to have seed heads.
