Of all the elegant trees at the nursery, it was a stout Gingko Dwarf that I came away with. It was Angie‘s idea. Angie has worked at the nursery for 25-years, and her enthusiasm for the little Gingko won me over. “See, I’m covered in goosebumps.” “Me, too.” I responded. Enthusiasm really is contagious. Angie had long acrylic talons, lots of tattoos and her skin was the colour of caramel. “I’m out here every single day. Here, or on my boat.” The tree was a gift for our landlady, who is as passionate about plants as Angie is. Yuen wrote to us last week to say that the tree is happily planted in her garden. With so many good memories of that home, it makes me happy to know that we have a permanent place in it. Good luck, little Gingko –– grow strong.
