Four years ago today, I planted the Darwin Bicentennial Oak in my garden. I am pleased to report that it is doing well, and has now grown into a magnificent, erm, small sapling.

This tree-growing malarkey is a long-term commitment.

It occurs to me that I might have spent the last four years inadvertently gathering material for the longest time-lapse movie ever. Or should that be shortest?
