Sweetgums by the Bay

In Down's Memorial Park, old sweetgum trees turn shades of orange and crimson by the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. The autumn breeze scatters leaves in the low sunlight.

  1. Hi Matt,

    What are the plants behind the big trees called? Are they another kind of tree or are they a kind bush? Just curious.


  2. There are a bunch of scrubby young trees that grow behind the older sweetgums, along with countless interesting shrubs with berries and such. It's a cool place.
