A host of Pinguicula martinezii just to show I have open flowers too.

A small group of nicely marked self seeded Dactylorhiza in a Hepatica tub. These are the weeds I never object to.

Hi Fred. I too get "Dacs" in other pots. I have 3 leaf variants at present. No spots, multiple solid spots and larger spots with holes in. I know I bought a named hybrid some years ago and around 1980 I rescued some dacs from a local industrial site before it was developed but what I am growing now is anyone's guess. They grow so easily if you leave them to their own decisions, as to where they want to grow. ;-) Must check to see if any white ones this year.

They seem to like Hosta "pots". The 20 + I rescued from a neighbours pot last year seem to be doing well. Found 2 more today in a "Sax" pot when repotting. Thought at first they were lily seedlings.

The first of the Pinguicula 'Zarniwoop' to fully open a flower this year.

A close -up of Pinguicula martinezii showing that it's not just the leaves and stem that are sticky.

A few more photos of the carnivorous kind.

This is the reason that the middle greenhouse now contains essence of Felix.





The Darlingtonia are not to be outshone.

The sun reappeared today and persuaded Deilanthe peersii Deilanthe thudichumii to display.

Now where is that sun when you need it? The Trichodiadema densum are waiting



At least the Sarracenia are not bothered if it's cloudy.

Not the prettiest of plants but it is happy. Perhaps it's due to its antidepressant properties?

My other T&M hybrid Calanthe.




Edit.

Apparently I didn't post the one before the above to be able to say the one above is the other so here's the one before the other to enable it to be the other otherwise it isn't.
