Colors Continued...

Autumn isn't Autumn without the reds.

Jury is still out on the cherry-like fruits; two plant people are leaning towards some kind of crab apples, as November is rather late for cherries. Holly, of course, of some variety or other (yes we have a native but there are far, far more cultivars and hybrids). And the last is a rather mushed fruit head of winged sumac, supposedly a vital (and native) winter food source, but it has never appeared to me to be very appetizing, and I've never seen wildlife actually eating it.
