“We are the music makers and we are the dreamer of dreams…” – O’Shaughnessy
Welcome to the Asylum. This is my sanctuary and playground where the botanical figments of my imagination come to life.
Music: Jamie Cullum – Pure Imagination
Some Saturday stickiness for a little change of pace – just a few sundew shots for your weekend!
Drosera binata – various forms.
I love the way they light up at the end of the day!
Drosera filiformis var. tracyii
And now for some pygmy ones from Dom Diaz! (Thanks Dom!)
Drosera “Dorks Pink”
Drosera eneaba – green
Greetings from the Asylum.
A few shots from around The Asylum. Enjoy!

Seeds sown last year of S. ‘Leah Wilkerson’ x minor var. okefenokeensis. Seedlings growing quickly.
New pitchers of Sarracenia flava var. cuprea
Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Tarnok’ bud forming.
I’ll attempt to do crosses yet again with this plant… stay tuned!
Of course, can’t forget the up-cycled doggy bank with her first bloom! Check her out back in October…

I would usually do all my work in the greenhouse while the sun would shine, but I’ve recently installed some lights to work by! No longer limited by daylight hours, I can get a little bit more work done after hours. Sweet!
Light it up.
