Fall ginkgo

This is an interesting fall, as the leaves are holding much longer than usual, probably because of droughty conditions.

Ginkgos usually turn yellow fairly uniformly, then drop all of their leaves at once.

Not this year.  Around town, there are some that already dropped their leaves and some that are still green. Our small tree in front, well, it's been dropping leaves sporadically for weeks.

But now, the remaining leaves are turning yellow, so it won't be long until a golden carpet of leaves appears.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
