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?
