    VEry nice! The last one is particularly cute ... looks like each flower has a tiny balloon floating overhead. Alas, I have never had any success with utrics.

    I'm with you. I like that one too. Especially the shot of all of them in the pot.

    Quite a collection! Roridula is one I do not recall having heard of before. For those who might be interested in a little info about it, here's a site that does have some interesting and amusingpages to it should you read through them.
