  21. What a wonderful post Carol (and ArtMuseDog) nice photo's. And that haiku on bamboo is awesome and so true ... bamboo when it has rooted deep in the garden you will not lose it. It's a strong plant and so flexible ... I love the sweet sound of bamboo rustling in the wind. Thank you for sharing this gem with us.

  23. Material things can be like bamboo. Taking over your life and you feel overwhelmed. It is most difficult to eradicate too once it has been there for so long.
