Bamboo


Bamboo
Originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer

Some bamboo species only flower one time in their life. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. After this species blooms once, it dies. Some bamboo species live 130 years before blooming. I don't know how old this was but the main "trunk" was about 15 cm (6 inches) in diameter.
