Sundew (Drosera spathulata)

Remember when I was complaining about being unable to bring home a sundew last month? Well, I found one! Two, in fact. Thanks so much to Mel who offered to take me along on a trip to Humber (which I had never been to before and is like a million miles outside the city) where I scored three carnivorous plants. They were not on The List, but sometimes you just have to say “F-ck it” and ignore the list entirely. Which I did.

And then I got a hold of my senses and put some stuff back before checking out. Although, I’m still kind of regretting that I didn’t buy the blueberry bushes…. or the hardy opuntia for that matter.

Last night I scored a small tank for free from the curbside economy while walking home from the video store solving the problem of where to put these new plants. It’s all coming together! Not that there was a plan… but let’s just say there was and then pat ourselves on the back for making it happen, however unintentionally.
