Enjoying windmill cookies as we play in the yard. It's too hot for that hat, but she was excited it still fit. 😸

Golden Ginkgo
Ginkgo biloba, commonly known as ginkgo or gingko (both pronounced /ˈɡɪŋkoʊ/), also known as the ginkgo tree or the maidenhair tree, is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct. It is found in fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated, and was cultivated early in human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food. The genus name Ginkgo is regarded as a misspelling of the Japanese gin kyo, "silver apricot".

When we were looking at the property with the former owners, considering making an offer, I exclaimed "A Ginkgo Tree!" to which the owners asked if that was another name for their "Ben Franklin Tree." I'd never heard it called that before, and after doing a bit of research, I pretty sure they were referencing something else entirely. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklinia

Our Ginkgo 💕
Hailed as “undoubtedly one of the most distinct and beautiful of all deciduous trees,” the ginkgo certainly stands out. Unique, fan-shaped leaves turn a stunning yellow color in the fall.

This tree also comes with a bit of history. It is a living fossil, with the earliest leaf fossils dating from 270 million years ago.

This is my favorite tree in the yard! I was so excited when I first saw it, before we put an offer on this house. I've been waiting patiently for those gorgeous green fan shaped leaves to turn yellow, which began over the weekend. 🙆

Can anyone ID this? It's growing on several trees in the yard, even a dead one.

Moody Monday
After an exhausting 3-day weekend.

This is the sunset on the last warm day, Friday afternoon, as the storm clouds rolled in and brought cooler weather along with some rain Friday/Saturday.
