OMG!!! I never thought of doing a closeup of the sumac. Outstanding---I had no idea they could be so beautiful.

The seed pos of the rose of sharon I had never heard of either. On a forum I belong too some one was wondering why anyone would want a RS because of them. In my book it says some singles develope them and they cause suckers to grow everywhere so I mentioned it only because i wanted everyone to know I didn't have that kind. Does that make sense? MB

Small City Scenes said...

That should be seed pods.....duh! MB

Liz said...

Great shot! The colors are wonderful and the detail is stunning!

Oh! Wow! I wouldn't have thought these were berries! I imagine they aren't edible of infusable (does that word exist?)! It's a gorgeous plant, the colours are so vivid!

I've never heard of them either, but you've captured such great detail with this shot!

Jacob said...

That is a gorgeous macro!

It seems to me that sumac is non-edible, right?

Super colors!

Jacob,

You can soak the berries, strain out the fuzz, add a tiny bit of sugar...and it tastes like lemonade.

I've also used the juice with elderberries to make the yummiest jelly.
