to our new subscribers - several with whom I've interacted in the past 3 days. It's been a pleasure.

A rear view of a pitcher plant as seen in Selby Gardens. Sam went, "Wow!" when he saw this on the screen, so I chose to feature this view today, selected from 4 others.

In my oftentimes desire to give you a complete picture I ended up creating another page on my site. To see the other 4 images, go to PITCHER PLANTS. I have numbered them for those of you who like to share your responses here. The one above, #4 on the Pitcher Plant page, I feel as a very organic form. At the upper tip, Sam and I both see the image of an insect.

The pitcher plant is said to eat insects and other animals and, according to a sign in Selby Gardens, the lid (the insect image we see) and the pitcher close up as a trap. (More easily seen in the photos on the PITCHER PLANT page.)

What kinds of ideas and goals would you like to "capture" and hold onto for your nurturing and growth this week?


"I could literally hear the music this peacock was marching to... I feel his regal bearing in his footsteps and in the tune. I am not sure there is a word for "Male Diva" but if there was, this "man" has it!" Julie Jordan Scott

"I love the peacocks! Every year when I take my AIDS Awareness Club kids and HIV/AIDS infected kids from Children's Hospital to the Phila. Zoo all the kids run to find the peacocks. Then so many buy the feathers at the store and bring them home. One year a bunch of my students bought me some as a present.'" Andrea Losben

"Beautiful, as are all your bird shots. Lots of little eyeballs lookin' at ya!!!!!! " Dellie Rosen

March FREE membership in ARTELLA. I continue to be fascinated by the web site links Marney Makridakis sends daily with LinkLatte, one of the many benefits of membership. Marney continues to amaze me with the breadth of things she comes up with. See ARTELLA March Membership.


During this past year, using the Isagenix program, I've happily released 25 to 30 lbs of years of excess weight. This weekend, between Art Show activities, I took a few minutes to register for a site that has great information, including a TV report segment on it. Check out Wealth and More Time, should you have an interest in this arena.

If you enjoyed today's PTP, and would like to share it with friends, feel free to send them the link for this issue - In many instances, the photos are not picked up if you simply forward the issue.
