Got back from Amsterdam last night.  It’s a wonderful city.  My conference went well and I spent the last two days walking around.  Luckily, I ended up at the Floating Flowermarket.  I was overwhelmed to say the least.  Here are some photos but please forgive the quality as these were all taken with my phone.

What I didn’t expect from that visit was this: a shop FULL of carnivorous plants.  For the first time I got see all the carnivorous plants first hand.  They looked big, colorful and healthy.  This included Venus Fly Traps (Dionaea muscipula), Pitcher Plants (Nepenthes, Sarracenia), Sundews (Drosera). Check out the last 7 pictures of the gallery above.

I bought a few Amaryllis bulbs, VFT seeds, mixed cacti seeds and Lotus plant seeds.  Should be interesting! I will post more about that soon.
