One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Eugenia, Terry,Tatton, and Amanda thinned the "contained" running Bamboos at the entrance to China Valley
I think it came out very well; instead of being intimidated by a bulky dense impenetrable mass that actually invaded the pathway, there's a light airy feel with intriguing glimpses of the plantings behind the Bamboo. Carole has been urging me to do this for quite some time and I have to admit I ought to have found time sooner. Better late than never I always say.
I helped after lunch and had forgotten how satisfying it was to work with that many people at a pleasant job that comes to a good finish. Terry had been gone for a while because of health issues and it was good to see her again. She seems her old self.
