We got back from a two week vacation in LA & MS. Our plans got jumbled by the time we hit NOLA and I had to turn in the rental car before we could do a side trip to see actual CPs at the Crosby Arboretum in nearby Picayune, MS (or to go to the Abita Brewery north of Lake Ponchartrain). Allthough we didn't get to a CP site, I saw a cool piece of pitcher plant art by Walter Anderson, a pretty well known artist who had lived in coastal MS.

If you Google Walter Anderson pitcher, you'll turn up other pitcher plant art by him and family members. The one I linked to is at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and the museum is definitely worth a visit if you're down there, especially as a cool refuge on a muggy July afternoon. I generally am not into landscape paintings, but I was struck by the drawings, paintings and photos of Longleaf Pine savanna and it made me sad to think of how little of what is pictured there still exists.
