Nature Strip Adventure: nature takes over 

I’m no gardener – the dead shrubs and knee-high weeds attest to that fact – but I am fortunate to have a terrific bit of nature strip that is home to a gorgeous natural garden. Exploring there today, I found the population of Drosera sundew plants has exploded recently, completely carpeting the ground in places. These carnivores are tiny, but quite capable of fending for themselves; most times when I take a photo of one, it’s only when I zoom in that I see how successful they are at luring prey.
