office ginkgo (snapseed)

 

Remember I said there’s a beautiful ginkgo tree outside my office? Here she is. I’m sorry I have blinds because she’d be a lot more to see if I didn’t. Happy Friday!

“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” ~ Alice Walker

 

ginkgo at night

 

There are several beautiful ginkgo trees around campus. They’re even beautiful at night. I’ve got one right outside my office, and boy, is it gorgeous right now. This isn’t it. This is another ginkgo between the administration building and the Gatton Business College. I caught it tonight as I was looking at the Alzheimer’s awareness lights in Gatton and Memorial Hall. It’s a beautiful time of the year.

They say that ginkgo leaves land precisely where they hanged in the tree, forming a perfect footprint; a silhouette in bright yellow on the ground. There are several ginkgo trees on campus, each simply gorgeous. This year’s weather has robbed us of their long-term beauty, but even still, and despite lbeing trampled by Thanksgiving bound students, they offer a great deal of beauty. How beautiful to have a ginkgo tree lined lane to ones home. How beautiful to see everyday at work.
