have a great day, Hugh 🙂
Thank you. You too.
Well Hugh, is the puzzle that it looks like it will storm soon from these brooding skies, yet it appears that a tree to the far right has already lost a limb from a storm?
Here is my Wordless Wednesday link. I am still on a roll with the birds for Wordless Wednesday. Another new bird for me and an usual one at that:
Well who knew I would learn something on Wordless Wednesday. What interesting branches.
I’ve learned quite a lot about Monkey Puzzle trees over the last 24 hours.
I haven’t a clue! Here was my view yesterday am https://jttwissel.com/2022/10/12/morning-wordlesswednesday/
I didn’t understand the puzzle part let alone the solving part!!
It’s a Monkey Puzzle tree.
I learned something new today, as I never knew the name. Thanks, Hugh.
I’ve learned more about this tree in one day than I have in my entire life, Esmé.
Since I dislike puzzles, I couldn’t figure it out, so I read the comments, and viola! It’s a Monkey Puzzle tree, Hugh! I learn something new every day. I actually like this tree, I’m guessing a conifer with needles?
Yes, it’s a very prickly tree, Terri. No wonder animals or birds don’t try eating it. I’ve seen a few in Swansea, all very big. They grow slowly, so they must be many years old.
A Monkey Puzzle Tree! I had one in Vancouver. Love them.
Me too. They’re gorgeous.
GOrgeous tree- lovely shape and color!
It’s an unusual-looking tree. Stands out from all the rest.
Was the stump a tree before? Should the bench be placed underneath the big tree so it’s in the shade? Are you waiting for somebody to show up? Do you have a meeting at the bench?
Great answers, Liesbet, but the tree is a Monkey Puzzle tree. We have lots of them in the UK. Not sure why they’re called Monkey Puzzle trees.
And I found this out about the name –
‘The common name of ‘monkey puzzle’ was coined during the mid-1800s when Charles Austin, a noted barrister, on seeing the tree for the first time, commented that climbing the spiny, spiralling branches would be a puzzle even for a monkey.’
So now we know.
That is a great and funny piece of information, Hugh!
Looks like it’s been very windy there!
Here’s my WW.
I took the photo on a lovely summer’s day, Willow. I think the trees were having a bit of a trim.
Ah! It is a lovely photo anyway 😊
