Ginkgo and Frank Lloyd Wright, Oak Park, Illinois

Budge Gierke writes on a blog (Bettendorf, Iowa):
"Until it gave up in 1992, there was a ginkgo tree in front of Frank Lloyd Wright’s first home in Oak Park, Illinois. The one pictured above still thrives behind the home and to the side of the studio addition. The historic site book shop is named for it. ....A few days ago while watching the ginkgo in our backyard drop nearly all of the green jewels of its crown in the span of just a few hours, I began to wonder what role the ginkgo might have played in the evolution of Wright’s Prairie Style."

"Dressed with my yellow jacket, I tried to be joined in this parc, under this marvellous tree, drawing a great sun invading the space.
Parc Balmes de Vic. 19 de Nov de 2010.
Vestit amb la meva jaqueta groga, he provat de integrar-me en aquest parc, sota un magnífic arbre, un ginkgo biloba, i he dibuixat un gran sol envaint l'espai."
