I figured I was safe. I knew she didn’t know the name of this bush and I figured she’d never find out. Unless she went out of her way to find a plant specialist to tell her, that is.
But I was wrong. That’s a really hard thing to be. After all, I’m Bongo – and Bongo is never wrong.
Except for this time.
My person got on the internet and looked at all kinds of plant pictures until she found it. The Sugar Sumac. That’s what it’s called. And now I have to let her post all her pictures.
We’ve been watching these bushes for a long time.
Way last winter they got these little pink buds all over them.
But if you don’t believe these were like this way last winter I can prove it.
When the weather started getting warmer all the color faded out of those buds. We figured we’d seen the end of them.
But then something extraordinary happened.
Well, maybe not so extraordinary but I wanted this to sound dramatic.
Okay person, you got your way. Can you put the camera away now?
