Pitcher Plants

I got these from my sister last year and grew them in a pot on the edge of my pond.  They are pitcher plants she got from an old beau who works with the Department of Natural Resources.  In December, I lifted them from their ceramic pot in the pond, for fear it would burst, and moved them into an old cracked recycling bin and filled it with peat moss.  This is how they look now--at the end of April (April 24).  I plan to dig a hole, line it with leftover strips of pond liner and transplant them there.  They love sun and wet feet.
This is actually March 19

Also March 19

A few days later

This one is in April after the flowers opened, April 21.

The pitcher still closed.
