Love Thursday ~ 04.02.09


Our first bamboo shoot. It is hard to tell, but it is about 3 inches tall. When I first saw it, it was 2 inches tall. I came in the house, got the camera, ate lunch and went back outside. It grew an inch!
I am going to love watching the bamboo grow this year--if we ever get sun again.

PS -Today is my birthday. Delurk and let me know you were here. I know you're out there somewhere.

Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes. I love it that my birthday is on Love Thursday and that you all came by to say hi.

Sara, that particular type of bamboo only gets to be about 12 feet tall. We have 5 different varieties now and the tallest one gets to be 80 feet tall under ideal conditions. However, here it will likely get to be about 50 or 60 in a few years.

Margie, thanks for adding me in. I stopped by to say HB to vchelle, too.

Cam, the sun is shining as I type! Perhaps we'll get a couple more inches on that bamboo shoot today.

And to all of you...thank you. You've made my day.

This date (I won't tell how many years ago) was Labor of Love Day for me. The fruit of that labor has been well worth it.
I love you lots.

Happy Birthday, Thithter. Isn't it great that all these cool friends stopped by with BD wishes? I hope you had a wonderful day. No matter how many birthdays you have, I will always be older than you, and I got the senior discounts first! I love you immensely!
