A Magical Place...

Seriously! 
It's a hidden gem, right up the street from our house, my son and I decided to walk there today..
here's just a little of what we saw...
Giant Bamboo, Ornamental Grasses, Hostas....

 Pitcher Plants to Banana Plants...
 Seedlings to Giants...
All colors and patterns...
Clinton Bamboo is clearly the coolest place around! 
They have such a variety of plants, not only Bamboo, they have Ferns, Citrus Trees, Cannas, Hostas, Fuschsias, Gunnera, Palms, Peonies, Pitcher Plants, Venus Fly Traps and much more!
If you want to just go for a nice stroll, go take a visit to them, the giant bamboo is AMAZING! It is beautiful there, plus you'll be greeted by three amazing dogs that will help you find your way around if you get lost. The owners are wonderful too! I really didn't want to leave and my son enjoyed it too, we've been talking about it since... we will be back there soon!
Of course we didn't leave empty handed....
We came home with four, 1 gallon pots of Fargesia Rufa
I planted it on the hill in the back yard above the brick wall to make a border, it's a clumping Bamboo, once it gets bigger you won't be able to see the backyard from the driveway, it will be fully sheltered, like a "secret garden" plus it will give the Peacocks some greenery and shelter from the north winds in the winter. (that's the Peacock Aviary in the bottom two pictures)We still need to put the roof on, it's leaning along the side there, hopefully this weekend we'll have time, we've had great weather although I don't think it's going to last much longer.
