Floribunda Rosa: Honey Perfume

© Rick Leche

So we must join hands in the dew coming coldly
There in the hush of the wood that reposes,
And turn and go up to the open door boldly,
And knock to the echoes as beggars for roses.
- Frost, "Asking For Roses"

Sarracenia Leucophylla

The North American white pitcher plant is a thing of carnivorous beauty; to see these growing outdoors would be pleasurable, to say the least. This rings especially true since its natural habitat is the endangered wetlands to be found in the Southeastern region of the United States, specifically along the Gulf Coast of Florida. The loss of species, both animal and plantae, is lamentable.
