    On Wednesday I set up a table with a 4' x 8' plywood and put 3 plastic trays of plants (Utrics, Pings, and pigmy sundews) on top and outside. I had it next to the garage, in a totally ignored section of the church apartment property. The plants weren't fazed by the move, but today, after coming back from taking my 12 year old to school, I saw a frightening sight. I saw two guys and a bulldozer excavating that area and found my set up (safely) moved to the driveway. Turns out that the church planned to expand the parking lot. Somehow I missed that memo!

    Whew!! Close call! Some of the construction guys I know would have moved the plants (somewhere) and used the plywood and saw horses. Have you found them a new home yet?

    For the time being I have them along the southern side of the house, right near the buckets of minibogs and rain-collecting trash barrels.

    Hahaha, how cute.

    Something about that story made me laugh; and the lyrics really do fit! Parking lots are sneakin' their way in to everything! I'm GLAD the plants made it back to you safely.
