I love the way you have caught this and the light.
Thanks Hermes.I took it in one of those rare flashes of sunshine during an otherwise dull and overcast day - and I think it shows.Lucy
hi Lucy. thanks for the comment- your pictures are great, thanks for sharing. AR
Looks like a monkey puzle tree to me
Thanks VP.It's just that the whole atmosphere of this tree is vibrant and fresh . . . whereas I usually find Monkey Puzzles dark and brooding.Lucy(Do Monkey Puzzles come in different varieties perhaps?)
I saw monkey puzzle trees for the first time last summer while visiting Victoria, BC. Absolutely fascinating.
Beautiful plant, nicely taken.
I'm pretty sure its monotypic Lucy. An amazing tree in so many ways.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucaria_araucana
Lucy,Such a great photo of the 'puzzling tree'...he he. I know nothing of the monkey puzzle tree...but just seeing it makes me want to look it up & learn more about it!!!
Hermes - I've learnt a new word - monotypic!Lucy
Hello Craft GardenerI'm surprised you didn't see Monkey Puzzles in England - they are fascinating, aren't they? . . . But very un-giving.Lucy
JanDid you look up Monkey Puzzles?They are unlike any other tree I know.I'm not sure many people plant them nowadays. You have to be very forward planning, I reckon, to want one because they look very odd when small . . . and are quite substantial when grown.Lucy
