See how our garden grows! I planted this river birch a couple of years ago, and after a summer spent putting down roots, this year it really added height. Think it's not so tall? Here it was just planted:
Oskar hasn't shrunk particularly, so now you can see the change.
I planted river birch because it's a wet area, and because I love the peeling bark. For the first couple of years it just grows, but I noticed while taking this morning's picture that the peel has begun!
Isn't it beautiful? I'm looking forward to much more growth in the next years.
