Encounter with the Stinky Flower


This summer the Titan Arum, or more commonly known affectionately as the Corpse Flower for its distinct rotting flesh smell (yum), bloomed at the National Botanical Garden for about 48 hours.  We were lucky enough to catch it! Though luckily we did not have to whiff its famous smell which only lasts for the first 12 hours or so. Derek was very excited to see "the stinky flower" and asked about it for weeks after as well. Here we are in our close encounter along with some more exploration. The garden is only about 4 blocks from where I work so we do like to visit a few times a year, especially for special events and the trains display at Christmas time.
