After the awful drought that we experienced earlier this year, the rainfall was a welcome gift but.....
.....look at my bamboo growing "wild and wassy." (uncontrollable manner).
Yesterday evening, my dear friend who loves orchids paid me a visit. We stood chatting for a while, and as I walked her up the driveway, she admired the bamboo and asked me to save her a few stalks when I trimmed it back.....she would use them for her orchids.
Early this morning, I decided I would trim the plant and deliver the trimmed stalks to her....what a lovely surprise that would be.
Of course The Overseer was keeping an eye on the proceedings.
A nice big bunch of bamboo stalks which my girlfriend will use for her orchids.....she will allow the stalks to dry first.
I was thankful that it was not a hard task like this bamboo cleanup in the above photo.....having the power company come by to trim back the bamboo from the electric poles can be expensive.
