    NECPS BBQ

    Went to the annual New England Carnivorous Plant Society BBQ hosted by Black Jungle this past weekend.
    Started off at their store, went to the Hawley Bog, then to a secret roadside bog and then to the BBQ at the Black Jungle Greenhouses.
    A fun-filled, CP-filled kinda day.
    There was a brief meeting of NECPS buisiness, but mostly it was Burgers, raffles, sales and all-around good times...

    Checkout the pics:

    Took the ferry Grand Rebulic outta Port Jeff to Bridgeport, Conneticut and it was rough seas on the Long Island Sound! You know the seas are rough when it tosses around a boat of this size...

    Got up the next day and hit Black Jungle's brick & mortar establishment and here's a few pics of some of their many, many frogs:

    Hawley Bog

    Onto the Hawley Bog. Turns out they had a big problem with poaching not so long ago. Some unscupulous individual cleared out most of em so Hawley doesn't advertise the fact they have Pitcher Plants anymore...

    Anyway, pics:

    Walking through the woods to get there

    Roadside Bog

    Next spot is one that Mike & Rich of Black Jungle heard of from someone or something... anyways, some back-mountain road had a crazy-nice Bog right on the side of the road!

    You can see how close the road is..

    One part of the "Field"

    Another part
    [IMG]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f155/quogue/Carnivorous%20Plants/***********BBQ/RoadSide/Field3.jpg[/IMG]

    Lots of big Clumps of Purple Pitcher Plants!
    [IMG]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f155/quogue/Carnivorous%20Plants/***********BBQ/RoadSide/Crowded.jpg[/IMG]

    More Clumps
    [IMG]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f155/quogue/Carnivorous%20Plants/***********BBQ/RoadSide/Clump1.jpg[/IMG]

    You can see how some of them look like they're "sunk" into the ground. But it's the moss growing up and around them.
    [IMG]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f155/quogue/Carnivorous%20Plants/***********BBQ/RoadSide/Sink1.jpg[/IMG]

    There were some Round Dews there too.

    Hey everybody! Only caught part of the crowd...
