Cape Cod Foliage

This may look like tropical foliage to you, but it's actually a sumac bush and other native flora on Massachusetts' Cape Cod. My family used to vacation "down the Cape," every summer in a different rental house. These houses were luxuriously maintained and had decks on which we could dine outdoors. The red railing is from one of those decks. I was able to spend some time with the folks during the '70s and '80s and enjoyed not only beaches and seafood dinners but lots of sketch and painting time. This is one of my leisurely views of just plain New England greenery in golden evening sunlight.
