Pitchers of plants
Ava and I went to a large pet and garden centre the other day. She was after more plants for her ever-filling balcony garden. I was more interested in the specimens above; Pitcher plants [top], Sundews [bottom left] and Venus fly traps [bottom right]. They are all carnivorous plants, catching flies and other bugs by various devious means. I've seen them in pictures before, but it was really interesting to finally see them in real life and up close. I resisted the temptation to buy though. Me and plants do not thrive well together!
