Small narrow garden behind a family house with an even smaller fish pond in a village in the middle of Europe. It's a great place to relax.

Thank you very much Nati. I like ginkgo a lot, especially the leaves and its autumn colors. This one is relatively small variety, suitable for my small garden. It works like a parasol for sitting by the garden pond. @natii

Thanks Nat! No, I’m not. Do you think I should be?

Yes 😁 There is a vibrant community of plant-loving talented photographers there that I absolutely think you belong with, and that you will very much enjoy. Slightly different focus there than here — here it's all about the plants, there it's also about the photography.

Interesting. I like plants and butterflies and garden is my big relax, but every time it is about the photography too for me. I’ll look at it. Tanks Nat! 👍 @grynnat

#ginkgo sprouts nicely. Hope it will be more lucky than last year when these young leaves were frozen twice. #maidenhairtree

This is my big HERO Ginkgo biloba 'Horizontalis'. It starts to sprout third time this year, because of first two attempts were destroyed by night frost. There are still visible small brown frozen leafs from the second attempt. #ginkgo #maidenhair
