BAMBOO TO THE RESCUE!
It was a sunny winter's afternoon; another perfect Sydney day. I
was on my balcony enjoying the sunshine when I heard a familiar
voice. It was my neighbour Tom.
"Hey Dean. My garden's looking good," he said in a proud and
confident tone. "But I can't help but feel there's something
missing , Eight new ways to decorate
for the holidays
"Like what?" I asked.
Tom, massaging his chin and gazing out over his own version of
the botanical gardens , Getting Tulips to Bloom for Two Months then leaned over his balcony looking me
straight in the eye and in a firm voice said..."bamboo."
"Explain?" I responded with a puzzled look.
"Privacy my friend, privacy," Tom retorted.
I thought a moment, looking a little puzzled and then it hit me!
"Yes, privacy! Bamboo , Pruning the Backyard Grapevine would give us the privacy we've been
looking for," I exclaimed although I wasn't sure how.
Let me fill you in. I live close to the beach in a block of four
town houses. , How To Use Vines In Landscaping Your Home Tom lives next door , The Sundial - Garden Ornament or Exotic Timepiece? with Jenny and the other two

waste any time in getting it up.
Our view was gone but we knew that was coming. With the building
, Speedheat Introduces New Products For Radiant Heating up we had another problem...lack of privacy. Suddenly blinds
which I had hardly ever used were being closed constantly to
keep inquisitive eyes out. We searched for answers and found
none until Tom uttered the magic word...bamboo!
"So Tom, what do you know about bamboo?"I asked in a not so
"Plenty Dean, plenty", he replied in an almost sarcastic fashion.
We both went downstairs into the garden , Easy Rose Planting area. Tom led the way.
He reminded me of one of those gardening , Spice up your Garden with Rare Flowering Bulbs experts on television.
I was almost in awe.
"Well Dean",Tom said resembling some botanical icon that I could
have put a dozen names to."Bamboo comes in a heap of different
varieties. See this corner over here, I think we'll put in some

"Yes," I replied. "I've heard that!" The truth be known, I had
no idea at the time.
Tom then quickly paced up and down the length of our fence.He
stopped and looked at me and said in an authoritative voice.
"You know, for height I think we might put in some Chinese

"Amazing I thought," looking high up into the sky then replying
a little sarcastically.
"I just hope we're not in any flight paths! , Marble Information "
Tom didn't hear me. He was in bamboo , Pruning the Backyard Grapevine heaven. He was kind of
talking to me but to himself, if you know what I mean. He
grabbed his chin again and spoke in a soft but stern tone.
"We've got to be careful with the running varieties of bamboo

I hesitated slightly and then responded a little shakily... "
