What’s in bloom

You don’t see many of them in NYC – but I just discovered that there is a female gingko growing on West End Avenue between 82nd & 83rd! (Gee, I wonder if my male gingko is helping to fertilize? Can windblown pollen make it around corners?)

Gingkos are actually a real problem throughout most of Philadelphia; I remember walking down Spruce, Locust, and Pine Streets in particular – and having the sidewalks and streets literally covered with the smelly fruit. Makes you wonder whose job it was to select the trees when they were planting!
