  2. Hi just wanted to say what fantastic photos etc of these plants in situ , keep up the great work and looking forward to other photos in the near future!! Peter from the UK

    • Hello Peter, thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate it. It’s something to see them in person and I hope that the photos did them a little bit of justice. :) Hope you’re doing well and thanks again!

  3. some beautiful country up there Rob,worth the drive for the views alone,darlingtonia is a real bonus.

  4. The pics look amazing. If you ever happen to be on the East Coast, you should check out Bridal Veil Falls. Drosera rotundifolia are just busting out of the rocks there. Very untypical for an East Coast carnivore.
