Theme Day for Feb 2009: Wood. (this is not wood)

Time flies! It's the first day of the month again. For February, the theme for City Daily Photo bloggers to post is "Wood". It would be interesting to see what people will be posting. I can imagine Tiger Woods, trees, gardens, etc. being posted by most people. I thought I will do something really different.

This is bamboo. It is NOT wood. It actually belongs to the 'grass' family and not 'trees'. Most people would think it is a tree and thus it is wood :-) I thought it was wood too previously. Visit wiki to read more if you want. :-)

Say hi to Mr Prawn. He just has a hot hot bath and it getting out of his 'bath tub'.

Reminds me of The Matrix's "There is no spoon." And should I tell you that banana trees aren't trees either?

Gorgeous bamboo cup. But it kind of makes it look like you're having Mr Shrimp for tea!

I'm sorry – you kind of triggered me off! ;)

Hi Stranger. Bamboo is being used in many creative ways throughout the decorating world, too. My favorite is the use of it in flooring.

Great photo!

Since bamboo gets used for everything "woodish" I vote for it being "wood".

I did not know bamboo was not wood, anyway, this looks hot and pleasant to the taste, is it? Perfect for this theme.

I laughed at this, especially Mr Prawn climbing out! I did know that bamboo wasn't a wood but it certainly looks like it at times. Nice post.

I'll pass on your greetings to Henri!

He gets hos body radish, it must be a steaming hot bath tub.

Is it common to use a bamboo as a serving dish? We do in Japan but I have not seen in NZ (at least so often). Perhaps, I need to visit an Asian restaurant more often.
