|The color of bamboo foliage is light-colored and is outstanding in contrast to other deeper shades of green.|
Bamboos are very familiar trees and are favored very much in Japan. How about in your country? Maybe do they look exotic? Bamboo grove is beautiful especially at this season.
Bamboos grow so fast that we can almost see them grow and they reach up to generally as high as 50 meters. The photo shows how they are tall: they stand on much lower ground than where I stand.
As you may know, the stem has hollow inside and solid partitions on its smooth surface. Because of that and the strong fiber in the stem, bamboos are strong and flexible though they might look delicate due to slim bodies. Breezes make them bend and they look as if bowing. They bend, but don’t break: they show that true strength is flexibility.
Because of the height of bamboos, we don’t see foliage but mostly stems at our eye-level height. Enjoy bamboo stem color from yellowish green to blue green to dark green and then look up to see foliage.

When walking in bamboo grove, I feel majestic aura, which might have inspired the creation of the story Kaguya Hime (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) in the 10th century.
