Thankful Thursday

Thankful this Thursday for unexpected adventures.  Softball had us in a different city this past weekend, with all sorts of good food, good times, and great finds.  This spring I read a book with a literacy group about a Venus Flytrap that only wanted to eat pizza.  Needless to say, this led to some research about how these plants really live.  I ran across some small ones for sale in a grocery store and that is how Truman came to live with us.  Yes, I named him because he needed a name and a Truman he is.  

I can't wait for my students to experience Truman in full form this fall.  He is already eating well and has been transplanted.  Here's to an interesting summer.  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Is it a Venus Flytrap?  Hey, it doesn't matter.  All things big and small can be appreciated.  Link up and shout it out!

  1. Greetings from Sydney! Lovely image.

  2. Truman is cute!
    Have a great day!

  3. Is it true about Venus Fly Trap Fragrance . . .?
    Or not Truman . . .

    My “No Go Days” are the BEST . . .
    Thankful for hours to paint, experiment, try, enjoy!

    1. Lynne, I don't think Truman has a smell, but I think the insects around him smell something. They fly/crawl right over to him.

  4. Well, whatever it is, as Truman used to say, "The buck stops here!" I like Truman but I'll stay clear during his feeding time! Have a super Thursday!

  5. ...I must be a Venus Flytrap!

  6. I occasionally come across those in the woods.

  7. That is so cool that you have Truman.
    I'd love to one one too.
    Today I'm thankful for sunny days in the 70's.

  9. My old garden club was called the Venus Fly Traps. We were a mess.

  10. Venus fly traps for sale in the grocery store . . . Hmmmmmm.

  14. My son had a venus fly trap plant for many years when he was a child--he loved that plant and used to catch flies to feed
