So, last week I changed my plans to vacation in Arkansas this week due to weather. The average temp in February is about 45 to 50f. Not bad for being outdoors digging for rocks. Well, I guess Arkansas felt left out for breaking cold and snowy records.

We did not go crystal mining because the mountain roads to the mines are twisty turny icey. Instead we walked around Hot Springs National Park which is in the backyard of out motel. It was the best birding...

Timing is everything. My mail order Venus Flytraps (dionaea muscipula) showed up yesterday while the temps were above freezing. Today, it was 29f when I woke up. Brrrrr. So glad I took Roxie for a really long walk yesterday.

Anyhow, I ordered a fly trap variety called The B52 which has the largest traps of all of them. When mature, the traps are about the size of a quarter and bright red inside. Common fly traps get about the size of a dime.
