Here We Go Again!

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 11 November 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Spotted here is a "blanket" of ginkgo biloba leaves found in my parkway. It's a repeat of what was captured in 2007. The ginkgo biloba tree sheds all of its leaves within just a few hours, creating this blanket of leaves. This year my neighbor's toddler son got in on the action with his dog as they stood under the tree as if they were being rained upon.

Did you know that a Ginkgo Biloba is a unique species of tree with no close living relatives? It is one of the best-known examples of a living fossil, because Ginkgoales other than G. biloba are not known from the fossil record after the Pliocene.
