It’s been a week since our last tree diary, and our tree’s growth has continued to accelerate. Here’s a picture of the whole tree:
The first branch has grown quickly and now has a big collection of leaves, and is even growing a second branch from the same branching point on the original trunk.
A few more points on the trunk have started forming new branches, with a couple at the top already unfolding tiny leaves. These are pictured below.
Some nearly imperceptible green bits have also been forming on the trunk below the first branch. I’m not yet sure whether these will be new branches or just single leaves.
