Underneath the Harvest Moon

Earlier this month, on 5 oct 2017, was the Harvest Moon. This is the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox. While out there, couldn’t help but snap some long exposure Sarracenia shots and even threw in some light painting (with the mobile device) for fun.

  1. Glad you are back.

    • Thanks George! Yeah, been quite busy in the yard but will have more posts later on… I’m saving my work for when it is colder/wet outdoors and blogging will give me something to do and get through those winter months. 🙂

    Love the pics. I really want to set up an outdoor pitcher plant area. I’m in zone 6 in NJ and I have 3 of those free-form plastic ponds. I think I can make a ‘marsh’ out of them. Obviously I’d need to get cold hardy varieties. What you think? I also have a pond on my property. Should I plant the borders with some?

    • Hi Doug! Thank you for your comment. Yes, I think those can work. Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea can grow where you are at. Yes, you can create bogs out of those pond liners. You’ll need to fill with peat moss or sphagnum moss to grow the plants. The same can be done for the border! As long as they have their requirements met, (full sun, acidic growing medium – preferably peat moss based, and clean water) they’ll do good for you. Happy Growing! 🙂
