Hikers flock to Raven Cliff Falls Trail for the rush of falling water, but a trip in early April offers subtler beauty along the way.

Since ninety-nine percent of trout lily plants are non-flowering, the illusive perennials pictured above are one-percenters thriving in the mountains of White County.

A second grade teacher from across the hall enjoys giving me a hard time for being vegan with multiple carnivorous plants in the classroom.  He also has a venus flytrap, so we decided to do a little pollinating.   See how it turns out…

This is my first go at cukes, and they are curious.  The vine flowered a sunshine yellow over a month ago, and I’m waiting for green oblongs.  Instead, pokemon-esque footballs connect runners to flowers.
