Mystery of the Corpse Flower!

Just got back from LA. I went to a place called Huntington Gardens hoping to catch the rare 'Corpse Flower' in bloom. We missed it by a few days. I thought I would share the photos I got of the day we were there. The Corpse Flower (also known as the stinky plant) gets it's name because when it blooms,.. it stinks. The smell is something similar to the smell of a corpse. Really!!!!! I also included a few flower pics from the amazing gardens. Loved it!
