Tiny cones which appeared on one of two conifers purchased from a garden centre in the early 1990’s for the garden of our present home in the North-East of England, where they thrived and grew very tall. This was my favourite out of the two,the other one being dark green in colour. This tree used to turn bright green in summer. I was told that it was a thuja tree (a member of the cedar famiily, but whether this is correct of not, I do not know. If anyone can identify it positively, I should be most grateful. This photo was taken in 2008, a few years before the trees succumbed to disease and, sadly, had to be felled. Grateful thanks to fellow artist, Carla Wick/Jandelle Petters for identifying them as juniper or cedar.
