The Ginko trees are celebrating another succcessful season of life. You can see here in the following photo the fruits of their endeavors. I have often thought of these fruits as looking like persimmons. It is too bad you can't eat them. This tree is so prolific. It must be so prolific because its mate is so close to it. The male tree is the big fat tree in the back and the female bearing all this fruit is in the foreground.The trees around the ginkos try their best to out shine the ginkos.
Even though they are quite striking in their fall finery.
It is hard to outshine this carpet of gold.
The golden yellow almost matches the color of the childrens slide in the background. Now that is some yellow.
Having one of these living fossils in your garden would be wonderful if you have room for it. You can go here to read more about it. It seems that they turn yellow and then drop their leaves all at one time. A beautiful sight. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
