Painted Yellow

The golden ginkgo leaves are starting to pop up all over the city lately!

Some are still a little green while others are scattered all across the sidewalk. But either way they really brighten up the streets!

Hope you're enjoying a bright and beautiful day...Happy Friday!

Enjoy looking at more beautiful skies all around the world here.


  1. We lost all our ginko leaves in the great wind, so I'll have to enjoy them vicariously over here.

  2. I know it's a bit messy when tons of leaves fall on the streets but as you say Kaori it looks soooo pretty! Have a lovely weekend.

  3. What cheerful yellow! This does brighten my day! All of our trees are naked now, except for the pines. I'm already longing for spring!

  4. I smile involuntarily whenever I see a golden ginkgo ... whether it's in a street or in a photo. PS: Have you been to that small park behind Tochō? It's beautiful right now.

  5. It feels a bit like Oz with its yellow (and) brick road. Brilliant.

    So that was you over on the left taking a photo. (Ha ha).

    This is a busy time of year with all those year-end parties; New-Years card writing; and soon, year-end house cleaning. I hope you don’t get too haggard. We are glad you find the time to stop by and update yourself. Cheers!

  6. Did I say “left”? I meant—right.

  7. golden beauty indeed. please have a good weekend ahead.

  8. That is so beautiful, lighting up the city. It's amazing to me to see trees with leaves still left on them (other than evergreens).

  9. We have some ginkgo trees here too. This reminds me it's been a few week since I last did a SWF!

  10. Thank you all for your comments! :D

    @Karin, I'll try to get as many photos as I can then!

    @Grace, thank you! I love it when they are scattered all over the place, too!

    @Rachel, I know what you mean...I enjoy winter for a few days and then I'm longing for longer and warmer days!

    @Rurousha, I haven't been to Shinjuku Chuo park yet! I hate that the most pretty days outside are the most busy days spend inside for me...hope I get to go by soon :D

    @TallGary, it seems as if the days are passing by even faster just as we need more time to get everything done! Such is life...

    @Robert, thank you! Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!

    @Al, it seems fall came to us a little later this year. Soon we will see only branches as well!

    @CafeP, you know I love your Skywatch photos! Hope you can post next week :D

  11. In the tree or all over the sidewalk, I adore yellow ginkgo leaves. :-D

  12. PS. The rainbow lights on my bridge shot sure are "China" and I'm none too fond of the bridge either! I actually think both are monstrous, and I am sooo surprised that no one is willing to say so! It's not as if I'd have cause to be offended! :-D


Thank you so much! Love it when you comment! xx
