    Sarracenia Portraits . . .

    I had always planned on taking some "formal" shots of the creepy plants at the height of the season but seldom managed to get around to it in the past. One of the easier resolutions for 2009, far more so than dropping that unfiltered Canadian "Presto Log" cigarette habit (just joking -- now), was to change that. But it is still quite early in the season, though there are some favorite front runners . . .

    Sarracenia leucophylla cv. "Titan"


    That same plant two weeks back . . .



    Sarracenia x "readii"

    You're right on that call. It was a late night and I was going through too many files, slack-jawed punk that I am . . .
