    Cephalotus art

    Most years around this time, I notice some of my Cephalotus have formed some odd-shaped leaves / pitchers (actually, they are usually some combination of the two. John Brittnacher did an informative write-up on Cephalotus pitcher development over here for those interested.) In 2008, I posted these. This year is apparently a banner year for their creativity & the unusual formations - as I discovered while I brought my 'outside Cephs' up from the basement. The first three are variations on the two-horn theme:






    Did anyone notice the flower stalk just emerging in the 3rd pic? I believe it's the 2nd one from that pot so far.

    This next pitcher was the one that made me get out my camera. It reminds me of a mouth distorted in a grotesque grimace of pain - but without the rest of the face. It's somewhat tough to visualize so I tried to snap pics from different angles:

    It looks like a baby bird begging to be fed

    I looked back at the picture I snapped this morning. Would you look at that at the bottom left of the rosette...
