Wednesday Vignette - cautionary images

I've posted in years past about our bamboo experiences at Longview Ranch. We have a history and a love-hate relationship with several of the varieties. Visiting The Bamboo Craftsman in Kenton yesterday, I marveled at the array of beautiful bamboos, including some stately and massive timber bamboo (Bambusa oldhamii) planted on site.

They're a bit hard to see in the picture below, but the astounding new culms of the timber bamboo were well over my head at about 8 feet tall, and still had hardly lost any of their sheaths.

Further along, I came upon this display.
Not only is that root huge, it would probably still grow if it was planted in the ground again.
Watch out!
