Visiting my Sister

Near Papamoa, My sister Diana and brother in law Mike have a property.  When I visited, I took a present.  A plant.

They love trees and have enough land to have a few.  Here are a couple of Kauris.

Here are a couple of young Rimu.

This foto of their young dog shows the part of the property that looks towed the east.  There are poplars on the boundary.

The plant I brought was a bamboo, "Dendrocalamus Latiflora".  It is one of the largest bamboos to be found in New Zealand.  It is a native of the subtropics of Indonesia and China.
Beyond the fence, in the middle distance is a busy motorway, leading eastwards to Te Puke and beyond.

The culm shown here is around 10cm through.

Bamboo demonstrates an interesting fenomenon called "Gutation".  This is the process of sap entering the leaves and moving so vigorously that it comes out of the end of the leaves.  If a plant is healthy, the end of the leaves,  the tips, are green.  Only one brown tip can be seen.  The plant has survived its journey well so far.

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.

Plants and dogs are two of my most favorite living things, so reading this article was a pure joy! And what is a better present than a plant, right?
