    And then the heavens opened...

    and the storm said "Hey look! Blaine has his pitcher plants out in the open." And the mighty storm dropped over 2 inches of rain, which was good. But they were huge drops with alot of hail and wind. And the plants said "Ouch!"

    Here are some pics of the results. Almost all of my sarrs took a pretty good hit. First the drought, then the bugs, now the "isolated t-storms". Sigh.

    S Catesbei took the worst hit...


    Judit Hindle came out okay. The Leucos got hit. Flytraps look like nothin' happened.


    Flavas got nailed.


    The Purp and rubras came out okay.

    Ah, crap.

    Nature took it's toll, oh well, things happen. Still, if I may say, very nice collection you have there.

    Thanks. I don't have anything fancy or unique like the big timers here, but it's a start.

    Could be worse, though, they coulda been picked up by the water and carried off, never to be seen again! *whistles innocently*
