AUDREY TOO

Another of the amazing things at the Butterfly Exhibit was the small collection of carnivorous plants. If you have never seen “Little Shop of Horrors,” the reference in this title will escape you. It refers to “Audrey,” the carnivorous plant taken care of by the nebbishy protagonist of the musical. Audrey turns out to be an alien from outer space, waiting to take over the world. Anyway, a couple of the plants in the exhibit reminded me a lot of Audrey, both the movie version and the one I’ve seen on stage.Cluster of carnivore plants Audrey 2 Audrey Too

  1. LOL. Carnivorous plants indeed. Of course it also reminds me of a short story John wrote about one. Also very funny. Deadly funny. And with the bees dying off we are going to need these insect propagators, so back off, Audrey!!

  3. I believe these are native to my fair state. Along with Venus flytraps. I'm so proud *sniff*.

  4. I saw "Coraline" this weekend, and some of these plants were in that movie. Quite cool.
