Golden Gingko

I first discovered the Gingko Biloba tree a few years ago when I was walking on the Cedar River Trail. Since then I try to visit each fall to catch it in its golden finest.

Today was the day! πŸ™‚

  1. Wow! How nice of the other trees to go with green or red so that the gingko stands out! Fabulous!

  2. It’s absolutely amazing πŸ’›

  3. Beautiful! I do think the Ginkgo has the prettiest fall leaves, but oh, the fruit that falls from the female tree is nasty!

    • Thanks for the info Pete! I thought I’d heard of gingko in another context but didn’t know the particulars! Nice to know it’s not only beautiful but healthful too! πŸ™‚

  4. I LOVE the ginkgo trees and the amazing leaf festival they put on every fall! There is a whole grove of them on the Sacramento State campus, where I purposely walked in November on the way to teach class to see the gold carpet, and the cool geometric landscaping the gardeners did. The whole grove in between the two buildings turned everything golden! You captured its beauty perfectly, Susanne!

    • Thanks so much Terri! I fell in love with the gingko tree when I first saw it ablaze in gold on the Cedar River Trail. I’m not sure why we don’t have more of them in Western Washington but the ones I find do stand out! An entire grove would be wonderful to see! πŸ™‚

  5. Lovely. I would love one here. Thanks for the actual name. I think I have mistakenly called it Ginko Balboa for years! LOL
