Autumn in Our Backyard
I hope you aren't tired of seeing fall foliage, because I just had to post my picturesque backyard in most of its autumn glory!
As you can tell, the sugar maple is completely bare, but this ginkgo is near peak color. The ginkgo was barely six feet tall when we moved here close to 30 years ago. It's slow growing but spectacular for a few days each November. The dogwoods and redbud were planted by my husband so that we can see the beauty of spring and fall right out the big window of our den.

Happy Fall, Y'all!
