Recommended Posts

Quest

When I think of 竹 or 竹林, I see a forest of eye candy green (翠绿) and there's that sense of elegance. Do the words bamboo and bamboo forest carry such senses?

I meant like 山水 like isn't that supposed to be like 文雅?

The word "bamboo" gives me images of pandas, SE Asian jungles, the Bamboo Curtain, Chinese restaurants, reproduction Chinese paintings and tacky wall calendars.
