I have the leaf

Not just any leaf. A Ginkgo leaf.

The name may be derived from the Japanese for silver apricot, it’s also known as the maidenhair tree.  You might imagine Rapunzel or Cinderella having hair of this colour, tresses that splay out with the toss of the head.

This time of year so many trees are full of golden colour, what would other tree could you stand beneath and whisper, Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.
