One of the first trees/bushes to turn brilliant colors in the fall
is Sumac. Image taken at the Volga River Recreational Area in
northeast Iowa. “As Is” using my Canon Power Shot SX50 HS.

    Beautiful work and tones. Is the the tree the herb comes from?

  • Thanks, Joy!!! Sumac is a shrub and is a poisonous plant, so I
    don’t think an herb comes from this. Good question though . . . I’ll need
    to do some more research on it. :o)

    Thanks Lori for letting me know. Love the tones of the leaves. As it is poisonous it may not be the same tree/shrub. I think it maybe the berries of the Sumac tree they use. May not be this variety.

  • I learn so much here!!! Thanks again, Joy!! :o)
