Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 227: My Favorite Trees

These lovely trees are directly across the street from our driveway, beautifying the sidewalk area along the parking garage, and they turn the most amazing shade of yellow in the fall. I'm pretty sure that these are gingko trees, based on the size and shape of the leaf and the coloration.

The photos below show the trees this weekend and today, as they progress quickly in their transition from one hue to the next:

By the time I get home from my trip in a week and a half, I'm guessing they will be completely yellow but also starting to be more bare as the leaves fall to the sidewalk below!
