Indeed, we do!Hey everyone. Yesterday was beautiful so I snapped a few shots of my American pitcher plants (Sarracenia). I have also been working on improving my photography which I think has made some progress.
Your talent for growing these plants is amazing. There's obviously some underling understanding of their requirements that I lacked in the years that I had tried growing them. I think a large part of it is the winter "rest" period.
But, your photography is exceptional. These photos accentuate the translucency of the pitchers and the lids (for want of a better term) that most others completely miss. And, the angle from which you've taken the photos lends a distinct Wyndham-esque flavor to the subjects. What's next? Green flashes in the night sky? Three-rooted plants that shamble across the landscape?
Are you performing clandestine genetics experiments in your basement or garage? Do I need to buy an extra large bottle of 2,4-D?
Keep up the good work!
