Ginkgo

A living fossil...that's one way the Ginkgo is described. A tree that has been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth...fascinating.

Ginkgo is suppose to help with memory, I think I got that right..
I would probably have to eat the whole tree..Anyway, beautiful work..

Hi there, very beautiful design. do you know Gingko is widely used here to boost memory, almost all pharmacies sells them in tablet and whenever we find someone getting poor memory, we suggest the gingko pill :)

Beautiful Ginko design! We planted one a few years ago, and one of these days I'll have collected enough leaves to dry for a project I have percolating.

Oh, and the bicycle seat is fine...it's just that human seats need more practice in the saddle! (I used to work in a bike shop, and cycled avidly.) Lovely cruiser.

letitiah said...

XUE said...

there's some streets near us, that's lined with these ginko trees & they look even more amazing when the leaves turn yellow! As it is now, some of the leaves are really huge ones! I hv to put some pics up, just to show you what I mean.
