    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 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 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 ... just another example of the world we live in
