My World Tuesday - Ginko biloba

It was a wonderful autumn day on Saturday - hardly a breath of wind and a crystal clear, blue sky. I went for a walk around the block and found this Ginko tree. For the technically minded it’s a Ginko biloba or a Maidenhair Tree. What I thought it was spectacular!

I’d seen these orange yellow leaves before, but never in such bright light. I’m glad I took the pictures because today, on the way to work, I walked past the same tree. Almost all of the leaves had gone, blown away by a Sunday storm. I really can’t image what a landscape dominated by this tree would be like – bright I would imagine!

You can find more images of great places here or you can click on the My World Tuesday link on the RHS of the screen. You can also see at my most recent posts on my other blog by clicking on the "Paying Ready Attention" Link on the RHS of the screen.
