#610 The Smallest Ginkgo Tree in Argentina

We often visit Japanese gardens when we travel.

We find the Japanese garden in Buenos Aires to be a calm oasis bordered by a 12-lane one-way street.
Plopped in the middle of all this "urban", two aspects of this garden stand out.  First is the large expanse of water.
And second is the abundance of large stones.
Often the stones are coupled with water.
The water and stones overshadow the plant specimens in this garden with one clear exception. 

I smile when I find what must be Argentina's smallest ginkgo (my favorite tree) in the garden's bonsai exhibit. 
Yours in keeping an eye out for the little things,
