If it’s Fall, it must be time for Ginkgo tracking

There’s a chill in the air and a snap in everyone’s step.  Fall has arrived and one of the questions we’re asked most often by callers to the property is “Has the Ginkgo started to turn?”.  Our Ginkgo biloba, located to the south of the Greenhouse, is one of the most spectacular sights of the season.  The elegant leaves turn a smoldering yellow and then, in the space of a day, they all drop.  We’re tracking the Ginkgo and we’ll post photos so that its fans can be sure to be here the day the color changes–and the day before all the leaves hit the ground.  Stay tuned and keep checking back!

    I was lucky enough some years ago to see the Gingko in all its glory…truly a sight to behold!
