249. Gingko Biloba.

As germanist (one who studied german literature, language and history), I must say there are three emblem trees in Germany, the "Lindenbaum" on each place of a village, and sung by Schubert, the nut tree, sung by Schumann and the sapin sung at Christmas. But there is another ! And this one is in the forest of Mormal. The Gingko Biloba, sung by Goethe in his West-East Divan is to find in a few pieces in the Forest of Mormal. There are four or five of these trees which were planted in the tree park (arboretum) of the David's Pool.
Behind the Ginko Biloba which you are finding at the first sight you can see some trees which we do not find easily in the North of France, it is the Giant Sequoias. Like in California. But so old and tall they are not.
