Daily walk to Work

Just a few weeks ago I was passing by this majestic Ginkgo tree all dressed in gold on my way to work. It is bare now, and soon it will probably be covered in snow.

  1. What a beauty, Paula! I’m never sure what a Ginko tree looks like- it’s such an exotic name. I must have a close-up! πŸ™‚
    And that music is perfect! What is it? Thank you so much for joining me in your precious time πŸ™‚


    • Thank you, Jo.
      Ginkgo tree has a very exotic and beautiful leaf shape. I used to take extract for dizziness some years ago, and I am convinced it works. Music is by Simon and Garfunkel (one of my long-time favourites) only this time they sing in French and Haitian about healing leaves. Going back to translating applications for EU funds…


  2. Such a lovely tree, Paula. Also I think it’s one of the most ancient still surviving on earth, AND it has a host of medicinal uses. In short, it shows itself off for what it is – a true glory – which you have so well shown us πŸ™‚


  3. … e ora che sono riuscito a far partire la musica a tutto il resto (:-)) aggiungo che anche la musica, come l’oro del Ginkgo, si irradia con magico candore πŸ™‚


  4. What a lovely walk to work. A pity work is not as lovely. You’ve done photographic justice to a queen of trees. My other favourite journey to work was brubio’s along a Venetian canal – and it obviously wasn’t a walk. Mine was a 60 km drive in my working days, and it wasn’t bad either. Travel well.


    • They are golden for a very short time, but this Autumn has been very unusual. All the birch trees in the town are still covered with leaves.


    • You must be tired of winter considering how long it lasts in your parts. This particular tree reaches its full glory in Autumn. In Spring it does not stand out this much.
