The gingko tree (Gingko biloba) in our backyard is turning gold as we progress ineluctably into Winter. I am very proud of this tree as I grew it from seed, which I collected from Melbourne University when I graduated. It has grown to a fine male Gingko tree. The background plant is black Aeonium, (tree houseleek), reflecting the blue of the sky on its very dark leaves.
