    Love those photos. Thanks for sharing. It's not often I get to see the plants growing in a native environment.

    They are coming to the end of season, but the D. rotundifolia were quite numerous.

    I love temperate 'dews!! Thanks for sharing. It's always nice to see them in their native habitat.
