Odd Revelations of the Bamboo Grove

In the grove of giant golden bamboo along the east river trail new shoots are pushing up from the forest floor.  Shaped like skinny teepees, they emerge very rapidly,  growing around ten inches a day.  If you're not having a clear eyes day or if it's dark and you're whipping along the trail it's possible to kick one of these and snap it off, as the middle one above was.
Along with the surreal bamboo shoots are fantastic rhododendron twigs and occasional broken stumps like howls of outrage.
