Wednesday Word—Ginkgo


Every year when the ginkgo trees up the block start blooming fading, TW brings me some leaves. I crossed blooming out cos she never remembers until this time of year when all the other trees are turning colors. Suddenly she’ll remember she has a cat. She flips the leaves in the air and I try to catch them as they flutter to earth. Or, I just run, run, run around to where I think they’re gonna land. It’s a fun game but I soon tire of it.

So what I’m thinking—and I’m always thinking—is: isn’t ginkgo that stuff that ginkgo biloba is made of and isn’t ginkgo biloba supposed to improve one’s memory? If so, I’m gonna help TW by making her a batch of gingko biloba since I’m tired of playing with those leaves. Maybe next year, she’ll remember to bring in leaves when they’re fresh in the Spring. Does anyone have a recipe?

Think I have enough to make ginkgo biloba?

We love the shape of those leaves! Thay look like little fans to us! I pal of ours (aeons and decades ago) planted a tree, and then found out it grew to 90 feet, so he moved it!

Did you make the stuff?

Catching leaves sounds very fun game. We don't have ginkgo trees around here but I've heard it is indeed good for brain. You are very kind to help TW making a batch for her memory :-)

What would TW do with you CK???

Austin Towers said...

I think TW needs to take the ginkgo stuff so that she'll remember to bring in the leaves next year!!

Simba said...

Brilliant thinking, CK.

Kitties Blue said...

That sounds like a lot of work? Maybe if she just ate the leaves it would help her memory. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Those do look like fun leaves. I think my kitties would play with them too. I hope you can find a good recipe. All humans could use to have better memories.

You sure are thoughtful, CK. We hope that recipe works out for you (and TW)!

Ginko leaves are beautiful. We have some here but I've never thought to bring them in to play with them.

These leaves are lovely. I am sure you have fun, too.
Thank you for caring about Chloe Jo. We is still waiting for test results. She has a way to go yet.

We have gingko trees here - they are called the tree of hope. The gingkos that were alive before Hiroshima in Japan was bombed are still alive now! Pretty awesome trees. Tell your Mom that she can bid on the auction and send a check if she wins. You don't have to use Paypal!
