Things I love: Bamboo

I've had people laugh at me when I tell them I think bamboo is a romantic plant.

However, taking this definition (from

(usually initial capital letter) of, pertaining to, or characteristic of a style of literature and art that subordinates form to content, encourages freedom of treatment, emphasizes imagination, emotion, and introspection, and often celebrates nature, the ordinary person, and freedom of the spirit (contrasted with classical).

... then I think it makes sense to say bamboo is absolutely a Romantic plant. The spirit of Romanticism most certainly resides in bamboo forests.
