Mariusz Komstra's Sumac showing off its fall color. Sumac are everywhere here in northern Vermont, including outside my window and this is exactly how they look. Well, not exactly... they're much bigger and growing in the ground. l don't know anything about the scroll, except that it's beautiful and works with the tree. I cropped the photo just a bit for a closer look. Mariusz' original is below
Mariusz Janusz Komsta is celebrating autumn with these photos and this quote by John Burroughs…”How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days”
Mariusz' famous hornbeam. Here's a link t what I believe is the first time we showed this tree. It was October, 2010. Since then we've shown it maybe a dozen times.
Closeup for better look at the leaves and the patterns they form. And some detail on the scroll
Back to the Sumac. This time the uncropped original.
