    Thanks Jan, I guess I thought this year was going faster than it really is. I should be wishing it were going slower.

    The local sphagnum bog here has a lot of D. rotundifolia. They form winter hibernacula and tend to break dormancy in mid-March. Below are some photos taken March 13, 2004 of the bog and its' D. rotundifolia just coming out of dormancy. The plants look quite similar to Homer's and Joseph's.

    Excellent. I lose my rotundifolia every winter... they seem to evaporate. This is a very nice suprise indeed!

    Regarding the "local bog". A few years ago, I stumpled upon a local government website that discussed low-elevation sphagnum bog environments in Western Washington. The site listed one only 2 miles away [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] In general, the website gave general locations - to protect the bog, which I'm all in favor for. But the one 2 miles away listed a street intersection! Unfortunatly, the site now has a RiteAid store [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] I lived here all my life and must have went by this place many times and never know that there were potentially wild CP growing right next door [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] ... just another example of the world we live in [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
