Corpse Flower Blooms At Chicago Botanical Gardens

Having grown up in Chicago, I'm glad I got to visit the Botanical Gardens. There's plenty of good nature to see there, but recently, Alice the Amorphophallus Titanium, also known as a corpse flower, has popped up in full bloom.

Corpse flowers are so named because they smell like rotten flesh. Alice may look cool, but man, does she probably stink. I'll enjoy her from the safety of behind my computer screen.
