Acacia seedling update

I visited the growing acacia tree seedling, and took some measurements and photos this week. Here are the results compared to last year.

I’ve started to measure the diameter of each of the main branches separately (even though they’re only twigs so far…). That should give a more accurate picture of how the plant grows over the years.

The pix are a bit dim as it was a cloudy day. We’ll see how the fella is doing later in the spring, and try to bring back better portraits.
