What's for lunch?

Heeeeelp! Save me! Ahhhh!

The other day we noticed that Andrea's rosemary was surrounded by teensy little dead flies. Rather than spray the plant with chemicals or start a rigid wash-the-plant-every-day-routine, Mom came up with a better idea. She bought a butterwort plant. A carnivorous species of the Pinguicula family. Butterworts have sticky glandular leaves that lure, trap and digest insects.

The plant is thriving. We picked it up locally and from what I have seen it is in it's element.

God is creative indeed!
