I’ve recently made a delightful, new friend. Earl is 10 years old. He is also crazy about trees and wants to know everything there is to know about them. What I really enjoy about him is the great questions he asks, many of them questions I have not even considered asking.
Imagine my surprise when Earl pointed out to me that one of the Ginkgo biloba trees we have planted in town is a male tree. This tree is young enough that it really should not yet be blooming and the flowers are not obvious.
It was a great reminder of how often I take things for granted and walk by without really seeing. Thank you Earl!
