ginkgo biloba

Just wandering down to our local village post office in the beautiful sunshine today I passed a gorgeous ginkgo tree, a  magical sight.

Ginkgo is thought to be  the oldest still-living tree species on earth   It can live for thousands of years and survive extreme conditions but also grows in a variety of climates. It is good for our happiness and longevity too. It improves circulation and oxygenation so is helpful to the body in many ways.  It improves blood flow to the brain, improves memory and mental alertness and has been used for a long time to improve the mind.  I add the dried herb to our tea regularly; it was wonderful to see those beautiful leaves wafting in the breeze and sunshine
