Let’s Eat


Hummingbirds love cypress vine’s nectar filled tiny red blossoms.


Any insect that is attracted to the pitchers becomes nourishment for the plant.


A little compost please.


Butterflies find sedum tasty landing pads.

Sausage, seafood gumbo with bread sticks! Yum, let’s eat.

  1. Ok, my stomach is growling now. The pitcher plant is amazing!

    It does reseed but is easily removed if you do not want it. It is great if you want it to take over something like a fence or wall. If you plant among your perennials you will be unhappy. Mine is basically confined to one area.

    What a beautiful pitcher plant photo. And I love cypress vine’s cheery red flowers and ferny foliage. But I’m too chicken to plant it! Does yours seed out all over the place?

    You fooled me with that last picture. Beautiful photos.

    Since your earlier photos are all about things alive, for a minute I thought the last photo is about a live crab feasting on rice!!… nice pitcher plant photo… ~bangchik

    I keep wondering what purpose the teeth serve.

    The pitcher plant is beautiful. Didn’t know they were so pretty. The teeth along the edge look kind of sinister;) The cypress vine is pretty too.

    Oh my goodness! That gumbo looks amazing! Yes, let’s eat — to heck with the birds and plants. 🙂

    What great photos! That gumbo looks very tasty! Your cypress vine is just full of blooms, no wonder it is a favorite of the hummingbirds.
