If days could be described in terms of flowers, plants or trees, then today must belong to the Bamboo - A sunny, peaceful Sunday that comes once in seven days. A day of rest, a day of retreating into one's thoughts and a day when the sounds are like those of the rustling bamboo leaves.

Do bamboos flower? I have never seen bamboo flowers. A friend who was working on her masters' dissertation in Biology years back told me that her research was to see how to induce flowering in bamboo plants. I hope she met with success. I never thought to ask her when I saw her recently in Taiwan. Next time, there will always be a next time.
