there's a blooming corpse flower in my city!
And I'm not going to see it irl.
Don't get me wrong, I love seeing everyone's Instagram posts, and I do think the corpse flower (aka Amorphophallus titanum, ours is named Uncle Fester :) ) is beautiful. But I have a very sensitive schnoz and I'm not a fan of gagging or puking in public.
Even though they say that he's not as stinky as most because he bloomed prematurely... still no. No fomo here. Yes it's rare, and yes I'm excited that my city has such a cool botanical moment to share... still no! I'm happy to enjoy it through the eyes of others from afar.
