Bamboo For You™
Two Bucks By The Pond
When I looked out the window this morning I saw two bucks in the back yard between the woods and the pond, so I captured a few photos. When we first started growing bamboo in the country, we were a little concerned that the deer might take a liking to it, but after sampling it with a little nibble here and there, they have learned that the tender new shoots are covered with short, prickly hairs and the older shoots, canes, branches, and leaves are very tough and fibrous. So, we are able to enjoy the deer without having to worry about them hurting the bamboo.
Here are a couple of close-ups from the photos above:
