Figuring it out.


Does anyone else see what I see here?
 

As I pass this tree every day, after about six months I took another photo. See anything yet!
 

Over time, after about two years, as the bark weathered the image began to change,
 

Enlarged picture of what it looks like now.
 

These are the cones on the highest branches of our enormous  Pinheiro Manso.
 

Last year tiny red flowers appeared on them, and we were amazed as this is the first time we have ever seen this. We first planted it over thirtyfive  years ago after it had been our Christmas tree, and to our knowledge it has never bloomed before.  

Has anyone ever seen this occurence before?
 
Yesterday my son figured out what was wrong with the computer. A vírus had installed itself, and caused all the trouble. I'm up and running again,with a little puzzle for you, to figure out.

I was seeing St. Francis...or maybe it was wishful thinking. TexWis probably nailed it. Love the bright red blooms.

Glad your computer issue is worked out! Loved the photos. I think I see a madonna figure in the first two shots. Loved the red flowers, too.

Ida said...

My first thought was an "Owl" in the first 2 photos but after reading the comments I can see what they saw too.
I've never seen a pine bloom with red buds like that before, very cool.

Derek Billington said...

Hi Sonjia, glad you got you computer fixed. Wow! "Red pine cones and Tree creepers" could be a book title!!!

Bethany Carson said...

Sorry to hear about the virus! Viruses are so frustrating, but glad to hear it has been resolved. Neat to see the blossoms on the tree...no, I've never seen anything like that.
