Monkey Puzzles

I took this photograph this morning.  Where do you think I was?  Some exotic island paradise -enjoying tropical beaches and sunshine?


Actually the photograph was taken up at Greenock Cemetery!  There are a lot of these monkey puzzle trees there.



Although cold, it is a lovely bright winter day here in Greenock.  There was just enough of a lingering mist to make some areas look a bit spooky.  I was doing a bit of research for my other blog The Greenockian, thus my reason for a cemetery visit.


How are you spending your weekend?

Love, Liz

That last photo Liz looked as if it had come from a film set.

Ah the Monkey Puzzle tree! These used to fill me with dread when walking towards to them with my Mum when younger. She used to say to me and my brothers that if you don't keep quiet while walking under one, then a monkey will come down and take you away. I STILL keep quiet when passing under them :) Have a great weekend xx

You don't see them much anymore, they used to be so much more popular when I was a child
