The Corpse Flower Cameth... and I took pictures!

I figure I’ll try that whole picture uploading thing, and what better to start with than my husband and a big stinky flower?

 If you look carefully at the Latin name of the plant, and look at the spathe (which will make the Latin make perfect sense), and then watch the video you will see why it appeals to my rather juvenile sense of humor.

 If this works, I’ll put up a picture of the kitchen project I’ve been blathering about.
