A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Some more old photos, as I really need to get out more taking more pictures. This tree is in the Botanic Gardens – I don’t think it’s a Monkey Puzzle Tree as the branches seem too close together, but I have no idea what it actually is.

    Looks like a monkey puzzle to me. My grandmother had one at her house – one of the many ingredients of ‘archetypal Victorian house’ – and I had a certain prickly familiarity with it as a child.

    I think it is a monkey puzzle, just one that hasn’t been cut back.

    Wow, that’s a bit creepy actually. I’m expecting a set of teeth to jump out at any moment.

    Teeth, Jani? Urgh, the fifth season of The Wire.

    Alec: Must admit that I haven’t seen Season 5. I was thinking more along the lines of low-budget horror movies, which seems to have a predisposition towards focusing on teeth and tentacles.
