Bamboo appears frequently in Chinese paintings. It represents longevity and straightforwardness.

Beautiful way to start my day. I feel like I am somewhere in Asia. Everything seems so dry in CA in the summer!

I bet it sounds wonderful when a breeze flows through. It is such a lush green.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Awesome pictures Joanne! Bamboo is also thought to bring good luck to someone you "Give" it to.
You can not buy it yourself "For" yourself.

Oooh, I love bamboo and so does Lucy---she eats all of the young shoots that come up. Beautiful shots!

Oh is that bamboo???

You know, in the rural parts of the Philippines, quite a many houses are made of bamboo! Little bamboo houses...the breeze seeps in through the bamboo, and the air is cooled...it is lovely! :)

katherine said...

wow..i miss to see bamboos now. when i was a kid, we used to play under the bamboo trees..they make sounds also if the wind blows..and we, the kids, believe that fairies are playing on top of the bamboo tree at night. That was the story of our late grandmother.
