2023 GINKGO WATCH THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9- SHOW'S OVER!

November 9, 2023 -- alf7f

The Ginkgo Grove undergoes a magical transformation each Fall as the leaves transition from green to gold. Here's what the Ginkgo Grove looks like today (Thursday, November 9th).

Although we think the ginkgoes look great year-round, their moment of golden glory has passed for 2023. Most of the trees are bare. The leaves have faded to a dull tan color.
