Barbara’s ginkgo tree

fullsizerender

At exactly 9:32 on the morning of Saturday, November 11, 2017, every leaf fell off Barbara’s ginkgo tree. This came as no surprise, although a little late. Most years it’s the 4th or 5th of November. This tree knows me- I swear
it waits for me to come around to witness its wonderful moment. This year the sky was bright blue and the leaves feathered by me as they planned…

If you have never seen a ginkgo or know much about them, they are thought to be the earths oldest living tree and are common in China where Buddhist monks have been cultivating them since about 1100 AD and fossil leaves are often found dating from dinosaur times.

They are around, so find one and make a point to get to know her, you won’t be disappointed.

UPDATE! This year the leaves fell on 11/11, that makes 2 years in a row for that date!
