Her Fiery Coat

Autumn flings her fiery coat over sumac, beach, and oak.
Susan Lendroth

I wonder when to harvest the berries.

I wonder how to save and prepare them.

I wonder how to dye fabric with this wondrous plant.

Due to unforeseen circumstances our trip was delayed one day. Stay tuned for news from the road. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. So that is what sumac looks like. Thank you - and have a great trip.

  2. Things can get in the way....

  3. Hi Sue, there are lots of different kinds of sumac and one is very poisonous, been trying to issolate them, apparently the poisonous one has white berries.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, oh yes things do come up that's for sure.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
