Fun fact 5/6/2016

The Ginkgo biloba tree is a living fossil – it is the sole survivor of an ancient group of trees that date back to beyond the time of the dinosaurs! If you look at fossils from more than 200 million years ago, you can see leaves that are incredibly similar to modern ginkgo leaves.The leaves are beautiful, fan-like, and flutter in the wind.
