Open thread: Blue bamboo

There may be a more persistent plant than bamboo,
but I haven't met it.





This is an iPhone photo of a bamboo "runner."
Part scout, part spy, these roots spread
in all directions and are nearly impossible to dig up.

If you have a story of battling bamboo,
or perhaps surrendering to it,
please share.

We all could learn lessons
from this magnificent creature.
