Our ginkgo tree

Last week we had a night where the temperature dropped pretty suddenly. The next day, the ginkgo tree right outside our front door lost all of its leaves (!!!) All morning and early afternoon it looked like it was snowing out our front windows, but it was just the tree dropping all of its leaves.

Landon was asking all day to go out and rake and he had a blast playing in the soft feathery leaves (they dropped so quickly they were not crispy or crackly at all like normal). Though this tree was the most drastic I saw, all the way to school that morning the trees had round pools of leaves surrounding them. Seasons change quickly here! (Today was a beautiful Fall day -- tomorrow the snow is coming...)
