Asha has detailed recent events in her daughter’s life concerning bugs.  When we were in Red Cliff, the boys were interested in bugs for other reasons – like fishing and when the tribal elder pointed out the Purple Pitcher Plants growing near Raspberry Bay….definitely thinking it was cool to know there were plants that ate bugs.

I then stumbled across this at ThinkGeek:

While marketed for a cubicle environment…

Perfect for the casual office worker who delights in watching insects slowly meet their makers as they are painfully digested by an engaging variety of meat-sucking flora.

Grab a set and grow your own collection of feared and famous carnivorous plants. This deluxe set has seeds from over ten varieties of carnivorous plants! Watch these fascinating plants grow into bug-eating monsters and delight in creating your own authentic bog with the included peat planting mix, blue Swamp Rocks, three Bog Buddies and full color decals. This rare and unusual collection of carnivorous plants will flourish for years in this specially designed terrarium with proper care.

…this might easily become a home plant set for older children (or Geekdads – I’ll admit I’m a bit curious to see a plant eat a bug)…or as a means of getting rid of those pesky flies that sneak into the house from time to time.


Feed me, Seymour…
