Have you every waited for a ginkgo tree to turn colors in the fall? It stays green as long as it wants, and then all at once, it turns bright yellow. Sitting under then feels like sitting under a canopy of tiny suns. And then, after all that waiting, after a few days, all of the leaves fall off. Usually, it happens in an unexpected Kentucky fall rain, and the next time you can visit your tree, it’s completely bare and the ground is covered in a blanket of brilliant yellow leaves.
I wait every year for this tree to turn, and this year is even harder because it’s my first year of not being on my old campus. But, Husband-Man works there, so he’s promised to watch my tree for me so I don’t miss the days of bright yellow leaves.
What do you wait for in fall?
