Ginkgo in love
I'm Ginkgo from Daruvar. For centuries I have been growing by the castle together with my town. I challenge people to spread their arms and hug my whole tree trunk. I reach out to children to play and climb to the top. I got the paradise name Adam. Every day I write new pages of the story in interaction between nature and people. Let me tell you my secret. I'm not alone. Next to me is Eve. For centuries we've been celebrating love and life in Daruvar. From her shadow Eve leaves all the flattering compliments to my manly stunning beauty. Hugs from Ginko.
