Water World Wednesday

                                           WELCOME TO WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY
                                                                 Episode 68, Year 2

In Southeast Asis bamboo is common. Do you know that bamboo is a grass? A longest grass but the most loved and so much to use it from. Well in the Philippines, we make a house out from the bamboo, we eat the shoots, lol! I tell you we do everything with bamboos!!



It is pretty unique huh? When that drops of water fill the bamboo, the bamboo will then tip to the basin and so then the water will fill the basin. That's where you get your water for drinking, cooking or anything. Love this one when I saw this at Japanese Garden in Grand Rapids.

Hi Kim, I saw something similar on the side road going to the Taal Volcano :) It's more rugged design though. I think the locals simply inserted a bamboo on the rocky soil to collect the water that's naturally flowing from the higher ground.

Bamboo is a wonder-and useful plant... and your photos give me such a quiet mood.
Greetings from Germany
Yes, from my parents I know how much used bamboo is (Till I was 5 years old we lived in Indonesia)!But I've personally never seen it used for a fountain!
Nice photos, Kim! I joined your meme!

How creative! When that drops of water fill the bamboo, the bamboo will then tip to the basin and so then the water will fill the basin. I have never heard about this experiment before. Keep it up!
