Now We Know

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

We’ve been wondering for a while why there was such a commotion whenever the food bowl approached the half empty mark.  Now we know.  And….we’re totally sick of the “Song of My People”.

Carnivorous Pitcher Plant

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

My little garden genie has been such a help (“Did you buy any more much, Grama?”) that I bought him a carnivorous pitcher plant a couple of weeks ago.  It’s been growing like a weed (somehow, I always thought they were hard go grow!).  I have it in total shade, but in a bright location on the patio.  I move it out from under cover when it rains, as chemicals of any sort are a buzz kill for the carnivorous plants (a Venus Flytrap is on our list to find).

Mason checks it diligently, and carefully waters it (and partially fills any empty pitchers) with distilled water if it’s dried out.  Yesterday, we discovered a stealthy little baby pitcher, growing in the soil under the plant, instead of hanging off a branch at the end of a long leaf.

Baby Pitcher ~ about 1 1/2" tall

Baby Pitcher ~ about 1″ tall

We also spent a little bit of time learning about the difference between a picture and a pitcher.  And then I had to take a picture of the pitcher.  So that everyone can see Mason’s happy pitcher plant.  Enjoy!

Blonde Mom has been having big adventures forever.  Once when she was 7 years old, she and her BFF walked 10 miles(!) to her friend’s family getaway home…Stoney Lonesome (where she learned to play tennis, one of her lifelong passions).
