WordPress Photo Challenge -This week, get inspired by the many connotations of the word “Spare”

The carnivorous plants in the Longwood Garden Conservatory always have a spare appearance to me, but looks matter little in trapping their prey. Many carnivorous plants depend on sweet mucilaginous glands to lure insects in.

Moral of the Story: Sweetness is often more alluring than glamour.
