**132/9-Tree Talk-Spruce Fir.

Spruce Fir-courtesy Wikipedia.

This is the well-known “Christmas Tree ” , probably regrets  the lack of good  old-fashioned  Christmas weather ,  because it likes cold & snow – the temperate climate of England  does not suit it very well.  Its
evergreen leaves are short & flat, arranged in a close spiral  along the twigs.  The male flowers are small ‘pinky’ ovoids which droop & turn yellow as they ripen.  The female flowers are in erect tufts of green scales, slightly tinged with pink.  The cones are up to six inches long with flat smooth scales, & they always droop from the branches.
