Silent Sunday

A carpet of golden ginkgo leaves under the bare branches.  At the park. One day the Ginkgo trees are golden and their fan shaped leaves are blowing in the wind.  Then it got very cold last night and they dropped off onto the ground.

 

Giant Golden Ginkgo

Not quite alliteration with the “g” but this is one majestic tree in Highland Park, Pittsburgh PA.

Ginkgo has several spellings and there are male and female trees. The golden fan leaves make it one of  the prettiest trees in autumn.
