It's cold, it's rainy, and I'm staying inside. I brought in my cacti and plumeria months ago. The plumeria has lost most of its leaves, but that happened last year, too. I was too lazy to go out and buy mulch this year, so I piled all of the leaves that fell off of the pecan tree onto the flower beds... and that's about it.

It seems that all us Austin bloggers are inside warming our hands over our keyboards this week.

Well back to the sunlight and the 70s this weekend. Yay!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the sunshine this weekend - I think it's gone again today! I brought my plumeria in several months ago, but have been keeping them warm in the garage with a little heater on really cold nights.

Pam suggested that I contact you regarding black bamboo. I have some in a rather large "Callahans" stock tank and I have recently been considering planting it out in the ground. I would love to hear from you regarding how yours has done and how invasive it has been? and how large it has become. My bamboo is quite a few years old, healthy, but very small both in height and diameter, perhaps due to it being in a container?
Hope to here from you,

I think we planted our black bamboo 4 or 5 years ago. It's in a mostly shady spot (in the ground) in the back yard. It still hasn't really taken off yet. We think that it's finally established, but it did struggle for the first few years... however, I don't water enough. So far, it hasn't been invasive at all, but I think that's because things have been so dry for the last several years. There are a few stalks that are 6 feet or taller, and a few little shoots have come up within a couple of feet from the original clump.

Just left you a message over at Blotanical; hope to hear from you there, and that you'll be adding posts here. This is really interesting stuff.

Well, thank you! I haven't been doing much gardening lately... planted some tomatoes and peppers last month, but that's about it. I'm planning a post on what's survived without my help, since I've done very little (besides water every other week or so) over the last year.
