It looks much nicer when the sun shines on it first thing in the morning Val they look like little diamond drops glistening with rainbow colours ...

Unbelievable shot. I hope these spiders will catch all the flies and mosquitoes. Good engineering job.

Thanks all I'm glad you like it , it's about 20 years old Ph.. it's approx 25ft tall , every now and again one of it's lower branches turns brown and then we feel that we must take it off to keep it looking nice , this year it had several seed pod things growing at the top , I can't see them properly to have a good look at them and I've no intentions of climbing the tree :o)

Beautiful shot, we had a monkey puzzle tree in the midlands, and left it behind when we moved south always regretted it, it would have been over 15 years old now.....

Some things you just cant move can you ,it's a shame it would have been as big as this one by now probably to big for your garden and nothing grows under it except bluebells I tried Lily of the valley , there are other shrubs round it with an entrance at the front the children use it like a hideout they even put tables and chairs in it so the plants were soon trampled on !!

It is not as if you can get too near it, being that spiky....
