Sometimes at this season, gingko trees will drop showers of golden leaves. I haven't had a chance to put my self on the sun side of one of these showers to take a picture. I tried today, but the leaves were coming down in tens rather than hundreds. Still, they make a good show, on the tree
or on cars
or on the ground
I noticed a tree or two that dropped its leaves still green
Mostly, though, the leaves are golden before they fall.
