M. went to the New York Botanical Garden, to see their corpse flower, a huge and terrifying plant thusly named because it smells strongly of rotting flesh. This particular flower hasn't bloomed in 36 years! So exciting. Here are his photos!



Look how large it is -- you can see the human figures for scale. Apparently the entire greenhouse just smelled like a rotting body. Or you know... like NYC in the summer. Haha.
