These Sassafras leaves were collected in the fall when their color had turned from green to red-orange-yellow-brown.  Sassafras trees are ubiquitous in South Carolina and so common they are sometimes considered a “weed” tree.  I remember chewing sassafras twigs when I was a seven year old, amazed at the flavor.  Besides its flavoring and medicinal qualities, Sassafras is the main ingredient in the Creole spice 'file’, which makes it a useful plant.  But mostly I just like the shapes and colors which look to me like the Lost and Found bin at the local elementary school.
