    Noah, one of the tdb water lilies survived the winter but hasn't bloomed yet. In that pond I'm having trouble with some oily stuff appearing on the surface of the water all the time. The celery didn't make it but the taro is doing great.

    I am not worried about getting the plants replaced. I will be getting replacements soon and some have already been replaced.

    I am now dealing with birds using my mini bogs for nesting material. Its driving me nuts.

    Arg! I know how you feel. I think my favorite sars from last year may not make it. They're still green, but don't really look too good. I was so proud of myself getting everything through dormancy....then I took them out too soon because I have no patience. Well, I think it's gonna cost me. Oddly, the VFT's don't seem any the worse for ware, just the sars.
    And something is digging up my pots. Not a lot, just a little, but they already tore out one of the VFT's. Hmmm....May be time to invest in a bb gun. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Haven't lost too much this year....actually nothing yet, but I'm having a problem with my S. minor "okee giant" It is browning all of the older pitcher and I think it may have something to do with a rhizhome problem...(I have rot and a worm thingy eating the rotten rhizhome earlier this year) but nothing yet.

    I just love these temps we are having. It wasn't suppose to get below freezing last night, actually a few degrees above. Well, the forcast was wrong, it got 2 degrees below freezing and well, I lost my Sarracenia flower buds. I may have lost all the plants that were still outside (over 40). Err. Not my year. I knew I should have taken all those plants to the porch. Not going to trust those weather guys any more.

    For those that have offered to send or help out with replacements. Thank you, however I will no be needing any. This will just be a way for me to make some room for seed germination.

    On Friday I went out to cut off the flower that had frozen and fallen down on my Sarracenia purpruea. To my surprise, the flower had recovered from the freezing. When I first saw it, the stem was all soft and mushy. I really wish I had taken a photo of it during the freeze and thaw. If I get some sun, I will try to get a photo showing the flower and were the stem had been soft. Seeing that flower purk back up made me feel alot better.
