Ginkgo fall colors
a luminous ginkgo
From my study window, the ginkgo under the power line corridor is amazing right now -- both from the study and our bedroom. We planted it almost 20 years ago, so it's tall now. And beautiful this year.
Our gardens (in the piedmont of SC and the mountains of NC) are increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, is now putting his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
I reduce the sizes of most images, but they're still bigger than what's seen on the blog (click to enlarge!)
