Hi Nathan,

I read the article about a month ago at a friend's house and this is what I
remember. The article talks about one man's gardens, a portion of which he
has converted into a bog. I think it was a naturally boggy area that he
created by damming or diverting a small stream in his back yard. The focus
of the bog is Sarracenia and the article describes several S. species and
shows pictures of a few (leucophylla comes to mind.) I think it also shows
a S. flower. It is meant as a human interest story and is not technical
about how to do it yourself.
