So, my human has been waiting all year for some magic tree thing to happen. It has nothing to do with the weird leafless Christmas trees either. No. She's been waiting for leaves to die and fall off trees. Yeah. I know. Creepy, right?
But I guess my human grew up in a place where leaves die every year and I guess she misses dead leaves. Or something like that. Since most trees around here don't shed their leaves, my human was superexcited last year when she found the Ginko trees. Because the leaves of the Ginko trees die and fall off.
I think part of the reason she gets so excited about leaf death is because when leaves die (before they turn all brown and gross), they turn pretty colors. The Ginko tree leaves turn a pretty cool bright yellow. And I guess Ginko-yellow makes for cool pictures.
I'm really not sure how I ended up in a ginko tree when we were supposed to be taking pictures of dead leaves, but...
Anyway. She's been stalking Ginko leaves for like months and they've finally started to die. I've never seen someone get so excited about dead things. Seriously.
We even took a special trip to a neighborhood full of Ginkos so she could take these (and a whole bunch of other) pictures. Pictures mean cookies and I like cookies, so now I'm a big fan of the Ginkos too.
Do you have ginko trees where you live? Are their leaves dead yet??
