One short month on vacation in Europe, and what do I return home to? A country song!
"Somebody stole my woman, smashed all my steel guitars,
he emptied all my whiskey kegs, then took off in my car.
But all that just don't matter, 's long's my pitcher plants do well,
Yeah, all that just don't matter, 's long's my pitcher plants do well."
Hah! Sorry, still jetlagged.
August was brutally hot here in Taiwan (occasionally up to 38 C), but some of the plants still managed to thrive.
Here's how some of my babies welcomed me back:
ventricosa x (spathulata x maxima), uppers
trunc x max
tobaica x raff
spectabilis x veitchii
mirabilis x bical
maxima x bical
gracilis x amp
ventri x madagascariensis
A whole kindergarten full of harlequins!
