October was a temperature roller coaster in Louisville this year. Yes, it got seasonably cool but the mercury went right back up into late spring/summer temps for several days. Consequently, fall has been gradual and extended this year, and I am grateful. I’d seen some gorgeous ginkos not far from my home last year but missed getting pictures. The fact that the ground was pretty wet and the sky a bit gloomy on Friday didn’t dampen my joy at finding these beauties at peak. No photos can do justice to the real thing but here are my tries from last week.
