It’s interesting to see that plant species can travel around the world and keep their name across many cultures and languages. Today’s tree is one of those interesting species: Sumac.
In Assyrian the name of the tree is ܣܘܼܡܵܩܵܐ (pronounced Sumaq), Arabic سماق (summaq), Latin sumach, French sumac. The original meaning of the name is simple: red.
During a nice day in southern Maine, we walked along the coast, and as I looked up to the perfect Summer sky, I noticed the almost subtropical tableau that was above my head.
In all this wonderful day was truly enjoyable.
