China Grove?

Bamboo Forest, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Charleston, SC

Soaring poles of bamboo grow thickly together to form a small grove, not in the panda populated forests of China, but in the semi-tropical gardens of 
Magnolia Plantation. Somewhere in the background I think I hear the music of 
the Doobie Brothers!

  9. lovely, light and airy! great angle and perspective of this green canopy!
    impressive height and strength of these "bamboo trees" - the specimens in my garden are dwarfs in comparison ... and a nuisance as they keep growing in all directions! pretty soon i'll have to do something about them ... ;-)
    (thanks for the birthday wishes for emilia! i'll forward them at once ...)

  12. Have you tried bamboo shoots?
    They're actually really yummy.
    I just baked some bamboo shoot cupcakes for my silly yak yesterday.
    Want some? ;o)

  22. I really like the energetic lines and the glow of light filtered through the bamboo in this shot. I'm reminded of the chase scene in "House Of Lying Daggers" when they swing through the bamboo.
