Cacti Flower in Bloom

Quite a spectacular flower!  OK - how many of you are laughing???  Christmas Day - one son said "What's that smell?"  We were going to have lunch on the back deck but they assured me there was a disgusting smell (I have no sense of smell - another story).  Yep -  this flower sends off an odour - definitely not a perfume - of rotten meat to attract flies (its food).  Needless to say, the pot got moved to right down the back yard to a safe distance.

  1. that was worth the wait - isn't it so beautiful and so so smelly - the benefits of a blog sans smell-avision. Hope you had a great day in spite of the odour.
