 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's image is of one that has been blooming recently.  This is Smooth Sumac which blooms in May and June.  Something interesting about this plant is that it is in the Cashew Family.  The fruit, also known as Drupes was used by Native Americans to make sunscreen and also red and black dyes.  I love these plants in autumn as the leaves turn a beautiful red color.


  1. I noticed something like this here the last few days. I need to get a chance to go back and look at it again.
