But to a fly lookin' for a corpse, I bet it smelled lovely and inviting.
What was inside? I kept seeing people taking pictures of the base of the middle on the live feed you led us to. Very curious, but not so smelly on webcam. :)
The 3rd picture is the one my daughter took attempting to lean down into it (those who got that close said it smelled like dead mice). I don't know if anyone got a shot that went much further down inside than that unless greenhouse staff decide to take one. I took a shot of the outside of the base, but my husband didn't think it was worth posting. Maybe it'll open up more in a day or two. . .
Why does this flower totally creep me out and I can't even smell it...
Am I the only one who finds this flower looks ... suggestive?And how big is it? *Eyes wide*
It's five feet tall.
These are great photos. Maybe it will smell stronger in a few days. My orchids always smell more after they have been open for a while. Very neat!
Are you kiddin' I smell it all the way to Mississippi! Oh, maybe that's roadkill? :P
Dark Orpheus took the words right out of my -- er, -- right out of my mouth.
Whoa, that's one big stinky flower. The photos however, are not stinky at all. They are quite nice :)
It's beautiful, in an obscene sort of way. I'm reminded of Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors. Thank god computers don't have olfactory capabilities yet!
