Weekly Photo Challenge: Flowers

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge is: Flowers

Perfect timing too! My Stapelia Gigantea bloom finally opened this morning.

The “Carrion Flower”! Two of the edges curled way back so it looks like an arrow pointing somewhere. The flowers emit a foul smell that draws in flies. The small black ants love marching in just to cart away the tiny eggs and maggots.

      Thank you!

      It stays outside or goes into the greenhouse when winter comes. I don’t think I’d keep it in the house when the blooms start opening… Not sure I want to know what that’s like!
