Last week I checked out the Kanapaha Botanical Garden in Gainesville. The place has lots of different flowers, a large herb garden and the state’s largest display of bamboo. We’re talking tall, tall, massive growths of bamboo! This photo, to which I added a painterly look, doesn’t really emphasize how tall the bamboo plant in the background is. (I needed a human to stand beneath it) but envision a person walking beneath the trellis on the right to get an idea.
Walking through the bamboo groves was sort of eerie, especially with the wind creating a soft rattling sound overhead.
