View Through Bamboo

This is another photograph taken at Kingston Lacy, Dorset. I had been lurking amongst the bamboo when I noticed the late afternoon sun highlighting the reds and golds of the acers. This combination was a wonderful assault on the senses: lovely warm sunshine; the bright colours of the trees contrasting with the darker greens; and the sound and feel of the bamboo – such a tactile plant.

    1. It is still really green here Sandy – most of the trees are still keeping their green colour. We’ve had a bit of a return to Summer! Bamboo isn’t native to Britain but it grows really well if it has some moisture and a bit of shade.


    1. Thanks so much Patti – that’s really kind! The reds and golds of the acers looked so nice in the afternoon sun. I really liked the design of the Japanese-style gardens at Kingston Lacy.


    1. Thank you so much Littleskew! I’m pleased you get an enchanting feeling from it! To me, there’s something about bamboo and stepping ‘stones’ …….. Hidden views being revealed … and so on 🙂
