Sunshine’s Macro Monday #33

My post for Sunshine’s Macro Monday:

While visiting our Desert Museum last week, we ran across this plant called Sugar Sumac (Rhus ovata).  It is apparently from the cashew family.  According to Wikipedia the fruit can be used to make juice similar to lemonade. Native Americans used the fruit as a sweetener, and birds also eat the fruit.

I would say that bees also enjoy the fruit!
