Ten years ago today I created the 324th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

The unusual fan shaped leaves of Gingko biloba, the Maidenhair Tree, turned to gold by autumn, are illuminated by the headlights of passing cars. It is now a common sight in streets and car parks, the last of a large genus, and comes from China. Fossils have been found of its leaves, the earliest dating from the Middle Jurassic period.
