    I am visiting a bog here in Ohio tomorrow. Will be a 3 hour drive, but this bog is worth it. One of the only few remaining in Ohio. Has a large group of S. purpurea and some Drosera. Will be taking many pictures of what is still in the area. Hope things haven't gone too far into dormancy yet.

    I was there in 95-96 and had a wonderfull time. Went there with a class, later with friends, and even took my parents once.

    I will hopefully post pictures of my visit tomorrow.

    Here in NY Drosera rotundifolia and intermedia have formed their hibernacula and, in your bog, might be hard to see. Look for the brown scapes protruding from the moss. Here, there are still some active traps remaining.

    Just got back from the bog. Well, we did a few other things. Much more overgrowth than before. Still lots of large clumps of S. purpurea and I did manage to find a few Drosea still in leaf.

    I was taking a photo of a very young S. purpurea when I heard a very close noise. I looked over to see a snake slither past about 1 foot from my head. Tried to get a photo... Will know later if I did.

    Will post a few pictures here and on my website later tonight.
