I LOVE Sassafras! It's beautiful in any season, but I'll feature fall- probably no surprise. Here's the golden understory row it creates along a road.
But last week I also got some nice pictures. Mostly because it wasn't raining, which it sure was today!
Here are the classic sassafras leaves. They come in three shapes- regular leaf shape, the classic mitten (perfect for Michigan!), and the three-lobed ones.
Here's a sight I don't find too often, though. Sassafras fruits! The blue-black orbs are the fruit. The red "vases" are the stems. Birds have already eaten quite a few of these.
It poured rain most of the day, and I was out doing assignments. Can't complain though- it's not too hot!
