Since mid-November this Gingko tree growing next to the Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in the Zhongnan Mountains has been dropping yellow leaves turning the temple into a yellow ocean. Every year in the fall, this beautiful tree sheds, and leaves behind a beautiful ocean of yellow leaves.
The Ginkgo tree, also known as the maidenhair, is sometimes referred to as a “living fossil” because, despite all the drastic climate changes, it has remained unchanged for more than 200 million years. It is a living link to the times when the dinosaurs ruled the earth.
This specimen has more than 1,400 years of life.

I have always been scared of death. But visiting this website and seeing these pictures of the Ginkgo tree and what could become of me in the after life, brings me peace. Thank you for that thought. I always said when I passed I wanted to become a part of nature. This is perfect.
