The Ginkgo biloba at Paulik Park is pretty close to peak colour. Like most ornamental ginkgos, it's
a male tree, because ginkgo fruits have an objectionable odor, so they say. In any case,
he is an extremely handsome tree, now thirty-something feet tall.
Every so often I get a hit on Rock Paper Lizard from someone searching for an image of a "ginkgo lizard." (I have posted on Ginkgo before, and the blog name completes the algorithmic oops.) I wonder what a "ginkgo lizard" would look like, most likely a hybrid between a skink and a gecko, a saurian bullet train with sticky wheels, which doesn't sound very functional. It would probably be yellow.
