Smelly corpse flower in bloom at the Conservatory of Flowers in SF!

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

We tell you about this every year and this year is no different....you've got three days to go to the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco to experience the "corpse flower" which is now in bloom! 

We mention the three day window because the flowers are in bloom for literally 3 days. They started blooming last night and by Tuesday....that's it. These flowers are so popular that Sunday night, there was a line of people waiting to get inside, with a few dozen being allowed in at a time.

Along with its distinctive look the flower is most known for its nose-crinkling smell. The flower's funky smell is so peculiar it can be smelled from half a mile away.
