Name that vegetation

Do you recognize the texture of this plant matter? 

It's a very pretty thing, actually. The name of the tree is Ginko biloba, and it comes from China. There is a tree near the high school. I've never seen one anywhere else in town. Last fall, I took a picture of it. When it drops its leaves, it tends to drop them all at once. 

This is a leaf I retrieved from there on the weekend. The leaves are not turning as quickly this year.  Here we are in early October, and the leaves are still green. 

Someone else found the leaf as interesting as I did.
