A rainy day, finally! Time for a reprieve of the "through my rainy windshield" series. Today, the ginkgo; I couldn't help noticing the yellowing ginkgo trees in the grocery store parking lot when I was running errands. The ginkgo is such a cool tree. I love the leaf shape, and how the leaves sprout out like fur along every branch. I think it's got a pretty unique shape for trees. Turns out it's a very ancient tree, native to China, with fossils dating back 270 million years. Common in the US for several hundred years, I mainly see it along easements and in parking lots.
