As people who know us know, we live in an apartment in Toronto. Neither of us ever lived in a house, but we both love to have plants, and back in Buenos Aires our apartment looked more like an urban jungle than a standard city place to live.
I guess we are little by little turning our current home into another garden, and a few days ago, while watering my little green beauties, I noticed that the ‘ginkgo biloba‘ we bought about 2 years ago, and which looked more like a dry stick than a tree, is waking up!
When we bought it during the summer of 2008, it had a few leaves, which according to their own nature, turned from green into that beautiful yellow of the ginkgos, and then fell down.
I like being patient with and taking care of plants, and even though we thought it was a lost cause -after 2 years… you’d think- I guess in the end it paid off.
Today I came back from work feeling really tired, after a hectic week, but looking at this little wonder of Nature, suddenly made me feel relaxed and happy.
Needless to say that this plant is a tree, so unless we move into a house, if this little guy -or girl, not sure about it yet… did you know the ginkgo has 2 different varieties female and male?- continues to grow, we will have to give it to friends who are as much in love with plants as we are, but who also have a garden to take care of it!
Here are a few pictures of our baby ginkgo in all its own growing will and eco-power -bear with me, I am still trying the new Sigma lens on the camera, so my blog looks a lot more colourful than ever-
