If I have any regular readers left (maybe a rellie or two ... maybe?), you may remember when we bought a little baby giant sequoia tree on our trip to Sequoia National Park last year.
This is baby Goliath in September of 2012:
And here he is one year later, October 2013:
He won't be terrorizing the neighbourhood from his pot for some time yet, but he sure grew! The lady at the gift shop said he would double his size every year for the first few years. He hasn't gained too much in height, but he sure is sprawling outwards a lot. A well-fed, bouncing baby Giant Sequoia. Be sure to check back next year for updates ...
