I guess I should start calling it a she, instead of it. She's a gorgeous red head, with strong limbs and she brings me much joy.
My little ginkgo tress are like that for me. I am wanting for them to wake up and start growing again. After this year ill have to find some permanent spots for them. This is going to be there 2nd year.
