Move over, mellow yellow. Ginkgo yellow is the new kid in town. At least for a few more days.
How we see color, and respond to it, is highly subjective. For me, the yellow of ginkgo leaves at their autumn peak is one of the cheeriest colors I know. I see pure yellow leaning ever so slightly towards orange. (In this chart, I’d say ginkgo yellow corresponds to #14, the most popular choice of “healthy” people, i.e. folks neither anxious nor depressed. Interpret this as you wish.)
All the photos in this vignette were taken last Sunday on the UC Davis campus, less than ten minutes from my house. I was checking on their aloes (post to come) and came across these ginkgos that were just screaming to be photographed.
