An annual autumn phenomenon occurs on several streets lined with Ginkgo Trees.
As the autumn season begins, the Ginkgoes become more noticeable as their berries ripen and their leaves begin transforming from green to gold. Then, almost all at once, and in tandem with a temperature drop, the leaves of the Ginkgo trees drop in abundance.
One after the next, the Ginkgo leaves drift from the branches and lightly land upon the ground, until the the sidewalk and street are filled with the chartreuse and golden leaves.
Today we got the pleasure of going outside to Potomac St. and embracing this natural phenomenon by playing in the autumn collage of brightly colored Ginkgo leaves.
