First Post!

                                                                                                                                                       One of my favorite things to do is "monitor" rare plants for the Metroparks of Toledo Area.  I first saw this Spatulate-leaved Sundew last year.  We had to visit the site several times before we finally found these tiny plants - most could fit on a quarter.  We found it easily today (now that we know where to look for it).  The flower is just in bud, near the top of the photo.  If I had been lucky, there would be some poor insect stuck to one of the tiny leaves!


  1. Oh! What beautiful creation.
    "Maumee Meditations"
    And a lovely format to boot. Windblown dandelion fluff! Perfect.
    How I shall enjoy the recordings of your wonderings through the seasons.
    I'm so lucky to share your journey, my friend.

  2. So interesting.
    I meant to say 'wanderings' . . . and actually. . . I prefer "wonderings" :)
