I posted something last year about stuff growing really slowly and absorbing any obstacles in their way. Like this tree, for example.
Well it turns out I'm creating some of this myself (without having really intended to). A little background? This is the house I lived in from the age of 12 to 17.
And it did. Really. Really. Really. Slooooooooowly. (Short growing season and all.)
At one point, it was really spindly and I decided to prop it up with a stake. And I promptly forgot about the stake. Until yesterday.
The string has been partially absorbed and the stake is now part of the tree.
Of course, I've now tied the stake to the tree in another spot higher up. I feel so creative!
