The Big Stink

This evening, the girls and I went to visit the corpse flower at the local college. Corpse flowers are huge, rare jungle plants that only bloom after many years. Their blooms smell of rotten meat (to attract the flies that pollinate them) and only last a single day. They are extrememly bizarre!
It was certainly the largest and weirdest flower I have ever seen. And the stinkiest! Despite the once-in-a-lifetime viewing, Rachel was not impressed.
So long, giant corpse flower, it sure was an adventure to see you!
