That time of year when I really start finding out what is going to survive, and what isn't ('Red Viper' and minor okee on the list of things needing replacement...), and oh so many flowers....my sister has finally noticed that flava and its hybrids tend to have an awkward smell as well, and she's not happy with me.

Pretty lid on one of the tallest pitchers to open downstairs...

That pitcher was then beat out by the next one the plant sent up

Things were looking good...and then unfortunately shortly thereafter the weathr flipped on me and one more cold snape passed through. That cold, combined with just the transition into full sun, I think has killed about a third of the flowers I had. Still leaves me with a lot of flowers...but unfortunately, as it always has to be apparently, the buds that bit it were frequently the ones with crosses I was most looking forward to...
