Anyway, back to dead or alive- On Christmas day 2010, I planted a little Christmas tree from seed, which I naively thought. 'next year I will be decorating it with tiny little tree hangings and glitter sprinkles!' I was so excited and couldn't wait for it to grow into a big, strong tree that I could soon use as my own family Christmas tree in years to come.

I then posted it's (very sloooooow) progress on my blog here (the ninth photo), when testing out my beautiful new lens in May this year. As you can see, it is lagging behind in my expectations a little!
Now, since then, 'little seedy', as he is affectionately known, may have been left for a few days over summer in a very hot room without any water while I was away, thus causing his most recent portrait to look like this:
He is rather shrivelled and, well, dead looking, but I refuse to believe he has met his end already. I am remaining hopeful that he has just turned with the seasons and is now showing a more mature, autumnal look- his woody countenance as a little pine tree should...
So now the question I ask all of you-
Is my little seedy Dead or Alive?
