It seems like Spring is presenting us with quite a few cool, grey, rainy days this year, but that doesn't mean that there isn't still a lot of beauty to be found. So to meet the challenge we donned our rainy day gear, grabbed the camera and went searching.
NC is very fortunate to still have wild carnivorous plants, such as the pitcher plants below. Some of these rare plants can't be found anywhere else in the US. I don't know what the purple, drooping plants are, but I think they're very whimsical!
And it was fun trying to catch a shot of the fish and polywogs swimming around the lily pads in this small pond. Perhaps on a sunnier day I'll see them a little bit more clearly.
An old log cabin makes a perfect backdrop for these burgundy blooms.
And doesn't this fern look simply magical?
