Glorious Ginkgo



Though not a native species, the ginkgo tree is a glorious addition to autumn in the South, especially where pine trees grow and never change color.

A great photo/perspective. I'm not sure if I've seen one of these.

Hi Kathleen. I went through magazines this weekend too! Yes, the Millennium Edition was a lot of work but a lot of fun too. Working on that project really taught me Selma history.

Tanya, these trees are native to the Far East, Japan, I think. There are many of these trees in Selma, and while their golden leaves are gorgeous, they don't hang on to the branches long. Our gingko was at peak yesterday. This morning, half the leaves have already fallen!

yellow is an awesome color! We have some trees that turn yellow during certain times of the year and its amazing how bright they get!
