While I was walking a trail at Wickham Park the other day…I was so surprised to see this stark contrast'. Click and enlarge pic.
2013-03-12_12-29-27_22At some point in time there was a fire in this area of the park. Look at the black trunks on the palm trees.

Wow what a contrast this was…my pic’s are not near the beautiful color I saw that day. But click on it to see better. You get a good look at the charred pine tree next to the palm. Charred palm with new bright green shoots sprouting.

A few others were same bowls bolted to cement blocks. I am not sure who puts these out …the park rangers, maybe? The all had fresh water in them for the wild life.
That is what the sign said on these plants I seen at the festival I went to over the weekend. Strawberry Festival. They are called Pitcher Plants and  are a carnivorous plants whose prey-trapping mechanism features a deep cavity filled with liquid known as a pitfall trap. So the internet says. These were grown in a nursery and very large. I think they are pretty and very interesting.

Well that’s it for now thanks for looking and come back soon.
