It happened so fast this year, first it got cold, then the leaves started to change, and a huge windstorm brushed them away. I never even really got a chance to show you the leaves of my ginkgo tree.
They stay green, and suddenly change to golden yellow, and in a flash they shower down to the ground. Well worth watching day by day, because if you miss a day, it’s gone.
And all the leaves are gone until the next spring.
Kind of reminds me of that Mama’s and Papa’s song...all the leaves are gone, and the skies are grey. I love that song.
Looking forward to spring, yes, that’s me.
But there is still beauty in the bare branches, especially when the sun shines on them in the afternoon.
