    I finally got around to getting some film from last summer developed and found these photos from July. This was at the Darlingtonia Wayside park here on the Oregon Coast. The day was close to 90 degrees which is very warm for the coast. Some plants were in full sunlight with no signs of "burning". Nights were still back down to around 60 and foggy. Most of the plants were around 30" tall - the largest one I measured was 41". Very impressive to see them. If you're ever along the Oregon coast it's worth a stop.

    Hope you enjoy them.

    Wow! A stand of Cobra lilies reminds me of prairie dogs standing on hind legs, surveying the scene for danger.

    Holy - uh, water...

    those things are awesome!
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
