186/365 The Corpse Flower

186/365 The Corpse Flower

It's true, that's really what it's called and it is all the hubbub here in town. This type flower has only bloomed I think 29 times in the US. Anyway it was very interesting to see, they now have the Houston Museum of Natural Science open 24 hours until this thing blooms. They also have a live feed that you can watch. It is rather amazing to see how big this things is.
