The Elephant’s Ears Posted on 15/10/201107/12/2012 by Tobias M. Schiel When I looked up the correct spelling for “Ginkgo”, the dictionary came up with the German translation “Elephantenohrbaum” which seems to be one of the many names this plant was given when it came to Europe. I liked that. Like this:Like Loading...

I never knew that — the gingko’s shape is so distinctive it reminds me only of itself.
Your photos, however, make its German name apt — somewhat —
But the patterning you’ve captured is all its own, and hypnotic.
Thank you, Judith.
