    Here's a nice surprise!

    My wife and I were out hunting for chantrelle mushrooms today..
    While wandering around, we quickly realized our woodlands had suddenly turned into marshlands. We were forced to push through some thick brush and prickers trying to find our way back over to the path we came in on. It was at this time my wife (who's lower to the ground than I am), started hootin' and hollerin' about the mosses all around us. Having not noticed, she began to point my eyes into the right direction.. since I had no clue what she was talking about.
    I crouched down a bit, and it didn't take long for me to to see what was hidden below the tall grasses we were trudging through..














    I began snapping pic after pic after pic (with the iPhone) of the hundreds of thousands of D. rotundifolia that were as far as the eye could see.. When I caught my first glimpse of a very familiar flower..



    Then there was another.. and another.. and another!!



    After carefully placing my feet, I began folding all the grasses back to find quite a nice surprise.









    We also found a BUNCH of fresh chantrelles!! Good eats..

    Very cool. I saw a lot of rotundifolia this past weekend on Mt. Hood, but would have loved to see some pitchers.

    Mato if you are ever on the coast around Lincoln City, give me a holler. I will show you a nice patch of wild rotundifolia on the lake out here if you are interested.

    Nice!!! The purp from your neck of the woods is growing like a weed!
    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    I saw the pics.. definitely getting more color/sun on your end than in this place.
    I've seen wild purp pitchers before, but never open sarr flowers. Too bad all the seeds had already dropped..
