Six years ago today, I planted the Darwin Bicentennial Oak in my garden. I am pleased to report that it is doing well, and is now taller than me—not that that's saying much.

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

I have now spent six years gathering material for the longest time-lapse movie ever. Or should that be shortest?
