Botanical Inspiration

I don't know why I'm so taken by this plant...

Amorphophallus titanum, The Huntington, June 17, 2009, 6:30 p.m.

but I am.

At first I didn't think the much-hyped "stink" was nearly as bad as we were led to think it would be. I thought it smelled more like rotten cabbage than a corpse. But, then I caught a whiff of it while lying down on the bridge above it trying to get the best possible camera angle.

Definitely worse than any funeral parlor....I actually felt faint for a second.

At the moment I'm on poetic sensory overload, so there are no poems yet.
