Taxus baccata

Talk about lucky...  I had originally thought this was some type of Fir, because of the leaf structure, but was shaken off by the red "fruit".  I'm no expert, but I've never seen a Fir with red cones that look like berries.  I checked Wikipedia (too lazy to check with more legit channels), and sure enough, couldn't find anything.  So, in the end, I just settled on something generic...

...well, not quite.  Me being the post-modern unmyself I am, I decided to click up a page before closing the tab, and what do you know, I find this.  That's exactly what I was looking for!  Taxus baccata it is.  Close, but definitely not a Fir.
