It looks like a sea of those plastic pink flamingos.

I should have had something in there for perspective. Those things were huge! Almost big enough to eat a flamingo.

I’ve never seen one of those before, very interesting.

Wow, can they eat humans, at least bite us?
I would be scared to step in, lol.

WOW Will this is spectacular, really that big, wonder what they are eating to be thriving in such numbers 🙂 Guess it’s a good thing if they are consuming flies misquotes or other disease carrying insects that might otherwise be spawning a plague.

That’s a fantastic photo – never saw them before! Happy to meet another gardener – we will have to share garlic recipes! I am starting a recipe sharing linkup on Mondays – stop by!

Wow I’ve never seen anything like this before. These are in California? I’ve lived here since 1969 and I’ve not seen these before.

Have a terrific WW. 🙂

Yes it is at a botanical wayside along Highway 199 between Grants Pass, Oregon and Crescent City, California.

If you have never done that drive you should plan a day to do it. The road follows the Smith River, possibly one of the most spectacularly beautiful rivers in the U.S.

I’ll do that next time I travel north. It’s been a long while since I’ve visited family in Oregon. 🙂

Hi Will – No you’ve not shared with me how to do comments a different way. Are they blogger comments is my question. 🙂


12 Will

Here it is. I will also post it in a comment on your site or email you so you are sure to get it.


Blogger has 4 choices for its commenting system. Go to your Blogger Dashboard and click the “Settings” tab, then choose “Comments”. Make sure you choose the “Comments” under the Settings tab, not the main “Comments” tab at the top level of the dashboard. Then find the box with the radio choices for “Who Can Comment”. You have 4 choices and should tick the top one labeled “Anyone – Includes Anonymous Users”. This will give you the Name/URL box on your comment form.

VERY cool WW post ..Love the pitcher plants! I’m amazed at how large they are!

Thanks for your comment on my WW… they are pear blossoms, but this species is an ornamental species and does not produce large pears…. the fruit produced on this species is slightly larger than a blueberry & only birds eat them.

I’ve oly ever seen single ones in pots, never that many at once. I don’t know if I’d be game to get too close. MUNCH!!!

this is an amazing shot. i have never seen them in the “wild” before although i HAVE tried to grow venus fly traps and a variety of pitcher plants at home… sadly they always die. even if i feed them flies. i think the air is just too darn dry here. i’ve always been fascinated by carniverous plants though.

love the shot! thanks for sharing it!
