    I am going to Florida(grrrrrr) the first week in December for my dad's 90th birthday, which is also Mom & Dad's 50th wedding anniversary.

    They live in the Brooksville area. Are there any CP sites around there? There is lots of real promising looking land there, and now that the freaking spiders are dead, perhaps I can go traipsing around it. Don't worry...I just want to look and take pictures, which I would share. I am a lot of things, and a plant poacher is not one of them. Are there any nurseries in the area that sell CP's?

    Thanks for your help, and feel free to PM me. Una Cerveza, por favor! Mas frias! Aprilh

    True, but I will also be going back there in early march. I'd be happy to see some phylodia, or dead brown pitchers, to tell you the truth. I've never seen a pitcher plant in the wild.

    Last summer I saw my first aquilegia canadensis in the wild...and I was thrilled!

    I would go hiking in the green swamp in the Withlachochee wildlife management area. It is in several tracts near there, but I'd be careful, I think that it may be hunting season then. Also congratulations on the upcoming trip to paradise, we friendly folk in the sunshine state welcome you. If you need more precise directions let me know.

    Oh cool! So, you're saying I should wear bright orange and pray? We drive through Withlacoochee on the way to Webster's Flea Market! I've always wanted to go back in there (after the spiders are dead, of course).

    I always look forward to some things about Florida, the friendlieness of the people being one.
