On Nov. 7, the Alumni Association news blog reported that the huge ginkgo tree in front of Grace Pearson Hall could be expected to lose its bountiful bouquet of yellow-gold leaves in a single day.
Only problem was, nobody was exactly sure about which day it would happen.
Now we know. Resplendent in a full flush of its fall finery as of noon Monday, Nov. 11, the tree was completely bald by noon the following day, Tuesday, Nov. 12.
Those of us fascinated by the trees of Mount Oread can mark our calendars: On Veterans Day 2014, head to Louisiana Street and try to catch the ginkgo hastily shedding its autumn attire.
