Pitcher Plant

Today, I am sharing two photos of pitcher plants, the provincial flower of Newfoundland and Labrador. I took these photos on a recent walk in the woods behind my house.

The carnivorous pitcher plant captures insects in the cup-shaped leaves at the base of the flower. It grows in boggy areas all across the province.
