Michael and I went and saw "Little Shop of Horrors" on Friday. I'd never seen the play, or movie, before. It's one of Michael's favorite plays. It was very fun!
I enjoyed the music, and it had some pretty funny parts. It was kind of sad at times, but I enjoyed it. The acting was overall great! Some people were wonderful. The main guy I thought they just picked him because he looked how the director wanted, not so much because of his singing and acting.
Anyway, while we were picking up our tickets Michael and I saw that they were selling Venus Fly Traps, for $5, Michael got very excited! So, we got one. We now have our first plant as a couple!
Don't worry we wont feed it human blood.
Here it is! Our little Jabberwock! We named it that because of the song, "Jabberwocky"
We learned a bit about Venus Fly Traps, or Michael did and he taught me. They will only close 3-4 times before they die because it takes so much energy. But, if it has gotten food, in it's place a bigger and stronger one will grow.
We didn't know that at first and we made it close without any bugs in it... oops! But, it still has some closing left, as do the other leaves on the plant.
The leaves are interesting, they give off a scent similar to rotten meat -don't worry, only insects can smell it!- and thus it attracts bugs to land on it.
I'll keep you all posted on our little Jabberwock!
