Pretty Pink Slipper-Socks

To Bristol yesterday to see my mother, pictured below with the dainty new pink slipper-socks we bought at the Almondsbury Garden Centre (Clare is wearing hers in the other room as I write).

As we have driven all the spiders out of our home- regretfully - to make it more saleable, I briefly considered buying the entities shown below at £5.90 per pot. But I doubt they'd survive the turmoil of moving so perhaps later. We once tried to grow Venus Fly Traps from seed but nothing came of it, they seem quite delicate. (Click on pictures to enlarge).

My mother poked it with her finger ... yes, it bit her! Then she read the notice saying you were neither to feed nor tease them.
