A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post called Ginkgo, One of Fall's Most Glorious Trees, featuring pictures of a large ginkgo at the Old Court House Museum here in Vicksburg. Yesterday, I went back by the court house to see if the leaves had turned yet, and here are the pictures I captured while I was there.
It's gorgeous, but hasn't quite reached the peak of its fall color.
After I left the court house, I drove over to the Vicksburg National Military Park to check on the ginkgos there. There is one in particular in the National Cemetery that I have photographed many times, but have never managed to capture in the fall.
I'd love to know how old it is and think I will try to find out. It is, without a doubt, the largest and most magnificent ginkgo I've ever seen, and I don't want to miss its fall show. I just love this old tree!
I plan to keep an eye on the big ginkgo tree, and hope I can share it with you when it is at its peak. In the meantime, I'm going to try to learn something about its age and history. If only it could talk!
