Festival of Leaves 2020 ~ Week #7: Ginkgos Going Yellow

Ginkgo, (Ginkgo biloba), also called maidenhair tree, deciduous gymnosperm tree (family Ginkgoaceae), native to China. Ginkgo has been planted since ancient times in Chinese and Japanese temple gardens and is now valued in many parts of the world as a fungus- and insect-resistant ornamental tree. It tolerates cold weather and, unlike most gymnosperms, can survive the adverse atmospheric conditions of urban areas.

I love autumn so I am hosting the 2020 Festival of Leaves Challenge. I will post every Tuesday morning and I invite everyone to join in any time through the week for any or all weeks.

This challenge usually runs about 10-12 weeks, with the last week being a wrap up. You can link up here or on any of the individual weeks. Be sure to tag your post Festival of Leaves so it is easy to find in the reader.

Here are some helpful links I hope will inspire you:
