Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

A victory for common sense

Woot!

I have mentioned before my aversion to trees that smell of bodily functions.  Since I wrote that post, I have noticed female ginkgo trees all over the place.  There are a lot in Palo Alto, and sadly, I seem to walk past them all the time.  I had hoped there would be less fruit in the winter.  There is less, but it smells twice as bad.

Anywho, I digress …

Reason: Other, smells like poo

Palo Alto is taking action!  Looks like they have started removing trees that have issues of the fragrant variety.  The trees are marked with an angry red dot and a tree removal sign.  I was intrigued to see the reason for removal.  I was thinking “Smells like poo” was the most accurate, but the politically correct folks who post the signs chose “Fruiting Ginkgo”.  I could add an addendum.  Or not. Oh it’s tempting 😉

Lisa.
