Another of my Pleioblastus species has started flowering. This is the
beautiful bright yellow&green leaved Pleioblastus auricomus. Only three flower heads are visible at the moment on a rather large clump of bamboo so the plant will probably survive for another year.

That's now two I'm going to have to replace.

Memo to self: do not remove dead leaves and culm sheaths when holding a pint glass of Old Peculier (or any other beer in any other amount within an open-topped container). Otherwise a rather interesting collection of invertebrates and vegetable matter (garnish?, salad?) is added to the beverage.

It's food Jim, but not as we know it.

Default A new addition to the family.

It was SWMBO's and my weeding anniversary last week so we went out and bought some plants. She now has a prostate rosemary and I have a Phyllostachys violescens which was planted in its permanent home this afternoon.

That is rather versatile for a person of a presumably female persuasion.

Thanks for picking up my speeling misteak.

OTOH, you may find this wikipedia link illuminating.

I think my Facetious Meter is malfunctioning. I didn't even pick up on the "Weeding Anniversary."

And thanks for the anatomical enlightenment! It makes sense, since male anatomy, as I understand, develops from embryonic organs which are more feminine in nature. I had not known that the corresponding female organ had been so renamed.

Nor I. It's funny having one's insides renamed by others. How is one to
know what one is?
