Now I want to make a fall quilt :thumbup: Don't you just love the beauty of this world!
Get thee to a color printer and use them in a quilt. It would be fabulous. :thumbup:

I wouldn't call them weeds. Lots of wildlife, especially the birds, use them as shelter. We would find deer beds below the trees. These can grow 15-18 ft tall.
Was fun to read your response, as my friends and I made forts under the Sumac trees too, as children.
