It is such a nice warm brown shade, so furry, so strokeable … is it my new pet?
So, what is it?
Beware! Touch it and you’ll never forget NOT to touch it bare-handed again.
This clump of Bamboo ~ the Bambusa Oldhamii ~ is grown specifically to create my own Bamboo Wall, a windbreaker of sort against hurricanes coming from the East.
But, I sometimes dig up a shoot or 2 to be used in the kitchen. Did you know they are excellent in Hot Sour Soup?
I just could resist taking these shots when I walked around this morning with coffee in hand & camera in pocket. 😉
