Reach For The Sky!

This is the back of my garage.
Four baby emerald cedars were rescued from an end-of-a-hot-summer garden sale at the local supermarket parking lot, all dried up and gasping for life in tiny pots, about five years ago.
They've done well, considering I haven't really looked after them.
Three look normal....

.... but what happened to the one on the far right?

It is bigger because it is the only one I won't pee on.

There's always one that either dies or flourishes at the expense of others.

You fed the one on the right steroids?

Nice rescue. Success stories such as this one are pure inspiration. ;-)

Nice. I love YoungerSon's answer. Perfect. :)

That's a nice garage you got there. I guess you can just trim it so they have equal heights

Too funny from the younger son. So nice of you to rescue the trees. I think they like their new home.

Genes and genes. What else? Light and shadow?

It grew faster maybe because it is closer to the side of the house where there may be people or activity? Some human vibrations of some sort?
