The three photos above show the "flower" on this pine. The candle has not yet developed and is still a bud. In the centre photo the flowers had gone soft and powdery and in the photo on the right they have been removed.

Back view of tree
22nd October 2008. These photos show the front and back views of the tree.
 
It will be seen when comparing the photo above with those at the top of the page that the lower right branch now has no foilage.
The close up photo on the right shows this branch. During the winter of 2007/8 all the needle went brown and died. The cause is not known, but this type of problem does happen with these cork bark trees.
