I went out today to feed the cat and beheld a scene of total carnage - It
seems the possums visited my cp collection last night. I had a little
bit of trouble with this last year; they would crunch the pitcher plant
leaves to eat the trapped insects. Well, this time, they went through
about 30 or more plants, uprooted 4/5 of them, overturned the rest. S.
rubra with 5 blooms - now a mangled mess. S. oreophilas - destroyed and
one disappeared. The only things to come out unscathed are S. minor,
leucophylla and alata, which haven't really pitchered much yet. I guess
it is time to start building fences in my yard, or putting everything up
on saw horses.

I am depressed.
