So … I’ve had people asking about the infamous pitcher plants. (I had a recent post on trekking through the swamp with my husband to find this plant.) I did some digging in the vast wasteland of my computer and finally found my husband’s photos! They were buried under several layers of files since I’m not the most technically amazing person on the planet. But I’m a busy technically-challenged writer who is on deadline with a project that has turned my hair gray. (Make that grayer.) So I thought I’d let the pictures do the talking today. Let’s hope this works. Something usually goes terribly wrong when I try to download pictures. Did I mention I’m technically challenged?
So here it is. Beautiful! Shy, full of color but a bit timid. This plant unfurls in secret places, like swamps and wet ditches. It’s a good lesson about looking for the beauty in unexpected places. (Kind of what I’m doing with this manuscript I’m trying to work into a real book. If I wrote all these words, there has to be a story in there somewhere, right?)
Here are a couple more pictures and then I promise I will move on from the pitcher plant. But I have to say, I was going through a time of transition when we took that trek into the swamp. Maybe God knew I needed to get lost in the wilderness so I could find the beauty in life once again. (See my perplexed expression to understand just how lost I was:)
Have you ever felt lost only to discover you’ve been found?
