Ginkgo Biloba



 

Ginkgo biloba: one of my favourite trees! We have two of them

growing in our garden - a everlasting joy to behold! The two

Ginkgo leaves I chose as my logo are from this tree.

 

To honour the Ginkgo biloba, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

wrote the following poem:


The leaf of this Eastern tree
Which has been entrusted to my garden
Offers a feast of secret significance,
For the edification of the initiate.

Is it one living thing
That has become divided within itself?
Are these two who have chosen each other,
So that we know them as one?

I think I have found the right answer
To these questions;
Do my songs not make you feel
That I am both one and twain?
