Good Fences - Ginkgo Tree Edition

Linking up today for GOOD FENCE hosted by Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report.) -  Hope you are all warm and cozy where you are at today.  It's a COLD one today with (shhhh, snow is on the way) here.  I'm staying inside as much as possible. Snow and winter are not my friends.

Last week I went out and drove around for awhile looking for some new fences to photograph (planning ahead for those days when I can't get out).
Right down the street from us is a house with a nice wooden fence.  What caught my eye wasn't the fence so much as what was behind it....



 
Just look at those Golden Ginkgo leaves cascading over the fence.  Aren't they delightful.
 

Ginkgo Trees fascinate me.  To learn more about them click on this link.


I like the Cupola's on this fence. 

Isn't this branch pretty....oh the fence isn't to bad either!

This branch still had some yellow and some green leaves on it.

 Note these photos were taken on 11-6-2014 just one week ago.  So this morning I walked down the street in our wonderful 20 degree weather with my camera and snapped this next photo to show you how much difference a week can make.

Yep all the leaves are gone now and that poor tree is bare but you can really see the top of the fence line now.  My hands nearly froze off walking back home so I'm staying inside now and enjoying looking at all your fences.

  7. Those leaves are a beautiful color of yellow. Sad that they don't last very long - especially if you get some high winds.

  9. Very pretty photos, Ida - I just love the beautiful Ginkgo tree! Yes, Autumn is so fleeting, but ending the season in a blaze of glory! The fence is very nice, too. Stay warm! xo Karen

  11. The fence is elegant! Ginkgo trees are so pretty! And I went to your link because I'm into trees too. Well most of it, I'm about any tree that is a host for butterflies. But now that I read about Ginkgo trees, I think they'r very interesting! About my pictures, I learned some tips from a lady from Washington State! Her name is Me Ra Koh :) I like your pictures too, Washington State photographers are so cool!

  12. What a beautiful tree and fence -- love the color. Definitely like the before' pictures better than the after; it was brave of you to go out and get that one though and great fun to see the contrast (especially as long as I don't have to walk out in that weather. I am a wimp!)

  13. What lovely photos, those Golden Ginko leaves are pretty individually but the whole is gorgeous overlapping the fence like that. It looks like the cold weather is here. I went out this morning and I could have done with wearing my winter gloves. Have a great weekend :)

  15. They have the pretties little leaves, like little fans.

  19. Well it was absolutely beautiful while it lasted!

  20. Very nice! The leaves against that wood fence look great...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love that you are showing the 'before and after' - great! And I don't think I've ever seen a gingko tree. It looks gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great post. The pretty yellow leaves makes it more unique.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gorgeous! It is sad when they all fall )-:

  24. They are one of my favourite trees. They have the habit of dropping almost all their leaves in one day so it can sometimes be surprising to walk by 2 days in a row and see a bare tree the 2nd day!

  25. those gold leaves were delicious. oh yeah and the fence isn't too bad either as you said.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lovely fence! The leaves are absolutely gorgeous! You captured some exquisite shots!

  27. You are making me wish I had a Ginkgo tree on our farm!

  28. Beautiful yellow jewels. What a great fence adornment.

  30. Oh, my word! I didn't even know gingko trees turned such a briliant yellow. It sure went out in a blaze of glory!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh that yellow is gorgeous! It looks like shining gold :)

    Hugs to you, Ida!

  32. That fence could well have been built just to compliment those beautiful leaves. Aren't they lovely?

    ReplyDelete
  33. These are great photos ... enjoyed all of them. Thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind comment. You are always welcome. John

  34. Beautiful golden Gingko trees look amazing in the Autumn. The fence looks substantial too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, Ida! I love that particular shade of yellow. And I love the yellow next to the rich wood color of the fence. SO beautiful.

    It was an inspired move to check out the tree one week later. Who would have thunk it, huh?

    WARM wishes from m & jb (who is buried in the bed blankets as it's too cold to lie in the window)

    Stay warm! :)

  38. That is one beautiful fence and the yellow leaves are very complimentary! Lovely post!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Fine "fence" shots and I liked seeing the autumn leaves before and afterward.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Both fence and tree are beautiful! Isn't the yellow color of the gingko amazing? My next door neighbor has one in his front yard and it is glowing these days - yes, the leaves are still on!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi Ida, I love that Gingko tree! What beautiful yellow leaves draping over the fence. I'm glad you took a nice walk in the cold to get the pictures of that fence. It's getting cold here tonight too but it's been mostly above freezing until now. Enjoy the weekend and stay cozy. Pam

  42. It's been close to zero Celsius here all week - so I have not got out with my camera either. My camera cannot actually be out in that kind of cold for long; let alone my own hands!
    That fence is gorgeous - would love that in my own backyard. The yellow of those leaves really show it off: just beautiful. My neighbour has a vine and I tried to capture that -- if I have time today, maybe I will post and link those pics.

  43. Wow, those are absolutely lovely captures of the Ginkgo leaves cascading over the fence!

  44. Oh, those yellow leaves!! Odd, isn't how, one day they're there, and it seems like the next day they're gone.
