I love the ginkgos, especially in autumn when they turn from green to yellow then fall creating a carpet below. But this year was a disappointment. I’m not sure what happened but I visited Ginkgo Grove in the State Arboretum one day last week and they were just beginning to turn yellow but were still mostly green.
I waited 5 days to go back thinking that even if they had begun to fall I would still get that yellow carpet. But no, not only were the trees bare but the leaves on the ground were still mostly green. The carpet may look yellow in the picture but in person it was mostly green. What a disappointment!
I’ve attached some past seasons when I highlighted the Ginkgo. This year is a bust!
I love autumn so I am hosting the 2021 Festival of Leaves Challenge. I will post every Thursday 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.
