  1. 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?

    1. 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.

        1. 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.
