'Bamboozled' in ireland (I have been told)is a term used to describe when you think you agree to buy a house for a certain price and a week later the builder calls you and tells you that it costs more now. I spent alot of my grown up life in NY so it astonishes me that this is actually legal.
I think that term must originate from the word 'bamboo' because you buy bamboos and plant them and think 'theres a nice plant' and a few years later theres a jungle where the plant used to be. I hate to go back to the rain here, but once the soil drains good, the bamboos thrive in it here. I declare- if bamboos had faces they would be laughing their heads off in their adopted home of my garden.
As a result, my pseudosasa japonica is trying to eat its way across the driveway. I thought about donning combats, buying a 4x4, getting a few pandas and declaring the area a protected zone, but my son mentioned he has a few days off next week so I think I will opt for getting him to dig trenches to hem them in a bit instead.
the pandas would have been nice, swinging around the front of the house tho'.
