The Darwin Bicentennial Oak, two years on

Two years ago today, to mark Charles Darwin's 200th birthday, I planted the Darwin Bicentennial Oak in my garden.

Having survived two unusually harsh Yorkshire winters, here is how the oak looks today:

I have never watched an oak tree grown before, but it appears to be an extremely slow (albeit not particularly time-consuming) process.

Happy Darwin Day, everyone!
