SUMAC IN THE RAIN

Ernie had a couple of errands he needed to run this morning and he invited me to ride along and go out to breakfast. Of course I went! When he finished what he needed to do, I asked him to take a swing through the State Park.
I could have asked him to stop about a dozen times, but it was raining pretty hard so I didn't ask him to stop for me to take pictures.
When we got to the picnic area of the park though, I did yell "Stop!" The sumac was such a pretty red, just washed clean by the rain, and
I felt the need to snap a couple of pictures. It's supposed to be nicer weather tomorrow, so before I make a resupply trip to Sam's Club, I just might run back out to the park and snap a few more picture.
It really is lovely in the fall in Minnesota. See why it's my favorite season?

The sumac is really pretty. We have it here in Arkansas too. Is it poison?

Unless you've had a dry year, fall is pretty everywhere.
