Carrion Flower: Flower of the Day, Jan 10, 2018


STAPELIA GIGANTEA–one of a few flowers that smells like rotting meat and so attracts mainly flies.  The purpose, however, is not for the flower to feed on the flies, but rather for the flies to pollinate the flowers.  

(I loved the similarity of the starfish photo I used in my last post and the shape of the Carrion Flower, so had to put them together in this post.)

Anthuriums: Flower of the Day, Dec. 26, 2017


This gorgeous anthurium was a gift from cross-the-street neighbors Brad and Dave. Such a unique color. I love it.
