Despite its reputation for losing all its leaves in one fell swoop, Ginkgoes usually give them up a few at a time. Over a number of days you get to enjoy the color and shape of individual leaves before the big drop finally happens.

I get the opportunity to watch our neighbors huge ginko lose it's leaves. Most of the time they come down a little at a time but every year or so it seems to dramatically drop it's leaves mostly together. I often wonder if it is that I don't pay that much attention some years. Beautiful photos. I especially like the second one.

Absolutely one of my favorite trees, as much for what it does in the fall as for its story. Unfortunately, there are none in my immediate vacinity, so I really appreciate them when I get near one.

Love the way the split in the lily pads echos the ginkgo split. Beautiful.
