Sassy Yellow

One can recognize Sassafras by the differing number of lobes on leaves from the same tree or branch. I managed to paint an ‘entire’ leaf and a ‘threelobed’  before my branch wilted. I did not  see ‘mittenshaped’ on our trees.

People  make tea from the root bark.  Sassafras is yummy but not to be sampled by those who are pregnant or may become pregnant.
