I loved our sassafras trees down in the Piedmont.  They were beautiful in the spring.

I'd made more posts than I realized referencing sassafras;  spring was a time to celebrate their flowers and then fall leaf color was equally wonderful.

Their progeny are now about to flower, next to our neighbor's house here in the mountains, planted with the owner's permission.

I see them from the upstairs window.  They're luminous in mid-day light.
