Well, this trip report dragged out some...but after a week and a bit on the road in Virginia and North Carolina, seeing grey squirrels who are grey, grey squirrels who are (mostly) not grey, and non-grey squirrels who are grey, it was good to get back to our neighbourhood fox squirrels, who are just red.

We last saw Drosera growing in the flat terrain and well-drained sandy soil of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. This situation couldn't have been more different—a rock face in western North Carolina that looks to be more or less permanently wet thanks to a seep a bit higher up—but there we found a small population of sundews.
I'm not qualified to tell one Drosera from another, but apparently D. rotundifolia is the only sundew found in the North Carolina mountains.
