Look what I saw when I looked out my kitchen window this morning? Woo-hoo!!! I wanted to get a pic of the bud (it looked more like a huge pod from outer space) yesterday...but I never did, and this morning it was opened to reveal a 12 inch Stapeliad gigantea bloom! The flies are circling, but there is not too much detectable odor to my human nose!
And a close up! I measured from one tip to the end of another tip. I had not ever measured one of my blooms before, but today I was enticed because of how large the bud had been!
Check out what my daughter did with the photo of one of my fall ATC's...can you see the little chihuahua in the scarecrow's arms? I like this much better than my original card...I can pretend that my little Doozey is actually in the artwork!!!
