These red berries which are borne in the fall are a favorite of wildlife.


Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

The leaves of the Ginkgo tree turn golden yellow in the fall and often fall in a single day if the tree is not protected by a building.  The picture below on the left shows the ginko leaves as they are just beginning to turn gold on the edges.  The picture below on the right was taken approximately 10 days later.
