Bamboo lives and thrives everywhere including my dear island of Ifelug. And I am sure it’s one of the most adaptable plant out there. It’s the very reason I was happy to find one at my house when I bought it. There was a bush of it.
Moving the bush requires a lot of manpower, which I do not have. But one thing going for me was experience.
Remembered back on the island working on pulling a humongous tree post for our canoe house. It was very heavy but we had a chain block and we used it to pull it up high and stuck it into its place. That experience helped me thought of a way of pulling the bush out of the ground.
Using a wheelbarrow and an adjustable ladder, I pulled the bamboo bush and relocate it to the backyard where it now sits and be part of the view.
It has to be! Let me leave you with a couple of my favorite bamboo quotes, one Chinese and one Japanese. They speak volumes and have very deep meanings.
“The Bamboo that bends is stronger than the Oak that resists.” Japanese proverbs. “Be like the Bamboo; the higher you grow, the deeper you bow.” Chinese proverbs.
