Bamboo query

11 comments


A few days ago somebody was asking about Bamboo and I said I would find out how she is. Now I can’t remember who was asking so I hope whoever it was sees that she has actually made a comment, the first for a long time. She is struggling on and has been told she has another year to live. She has already outlived the last estimate so is doing very well really but life can’t be much fun. I do miss her comments and wisdom

Her whereabouts were being questioned and out of the clear blue sky she made a comment in reference to the Clematis montana question posed by pennyfarthing. Metaphorically speaking, what life we have left can be a bucket full of sand on down to a teaspoon full and no matter how much, it all gets poured into an hourglass which some of us get to see run out and others not.

That's quite true but not particularly encouraging if it happens to be your own bucketful that's in question!

Thank you for letting us know Sue. I will definitely send her a message as she was always so calm and helpful in spite of her health problems … sad news though.

Thankyou Stera it was me who wanted to contact Bamboo, I'd lost touch with her, definitely was missing her and knew previously that she was always to be found on those pages, I was haunting the questions page hoping to see her name pop up, L'strife let me know her comment had appeared, I'm pleased to say I have been in contact with her now, bless her she is struggling but not giving up...

Good to know that she is still around even if she is struggling! But it's even better to know that she hasn't "thrown the towel in" either! 😀

Glad to hear that Bamboo is still fighting. I was happy to find this update as I often think of her when I look at GoY.
