One Big Flower


I’ve not done this before but I’m really pushed for time this week so I’m going to cover two photo challenges in one post. This photo is covering the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme of Big, and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge of a Single Flower.

This is the closest I’ve ever been to seeing a titan arum in flower. The Amorphophallus titanum is one of the largest flowering plants in the world. When it is in full flower it apparently stinks to high heaven, much like a dead animal, hence it is also known as a “corpse flower”. This photo was taken during our last visit to Kew Gardens, London, in late August this year.
