I always say that there is no fall color in Davis. While it is true that our native trees (like oaks) aren’t much to write home about as far as colorful fall foliage is concerned, imported trees do provide bursts of color here and there.
I take my younger daughter to school every morning, and this past week I’ve been captivated by this one Ginkgo biloba. This morning I finally took my camera and snapped a few shots. The color is breathtaking. The leaves are so yellow, they almost hurt your eyes!
If only we had more room at our place, I’d plant a row of ginkgos. I think their leaves are among the most beautiful of any tree, especially this variegated variety.
A friend just told me about four more ginkgos in our part of town, and I will try to find them on the weekend to take photos.
