The explosive power of growth

It's been quite some time since my we nailed this aluminum sheeting around the clothes line pole tree to stop animals from climbing up there.

As the tree grew, the aluminum began to tear. Eventually it ripped wide open. Now, years later, the metal remains tacked loosely onto the tree only at the back.

Years of steady growth have broken the bonds that once held tight around this trunk.

Slow and steady growth have set it free.

Interesting metaphor, isn't it?
