    This is so interesting. So you did nothing to prepare your bog for winter? I was looking at your list of plant survival last winter and I am impressed by how much survived. What were your expectations as far as plants surviving? With those results did you make any additions or modifications to the plants that you put in the bog?

    I also like the great variety in the plants. Well done, and I look forward to any and all updates.

    This year I won't protect it with a plastic sheep or something. I'll let the nature do the job.

    This year I'm trying Drosera binata, Sarracenia flava, minor, and Utricularia livida again. Next summer I will try to grow (only during summer) a few tropical plants (Utricularia longifolia, genlisea lobata x violacea, ...)

    And about my peat bog, I've got a surprise for next spring.

    January 21: The peat bog is now completely covered of snow. Last week we had -15F (-40F if you add the wind factor) for two days.
