Stinky flower....

I'm beginning to think we're nuts. The kids and I have spent the last few days in eager anticipation of the blooming of the corpse flower at our local science museum. In case you don't know, this is an extremely rare flower and has only bloomed a couple dozen times in the U.S. It's quite beautiful, but, quite fitting to its name, it's supposed to smell awful when it blooms. We keep the live webcam going on our computer during the day and the kids check it about every 5 minutes to see if anything's changed. They're so disappointed nothing's happened! Who would have thought we'd be this interested in a flower!? If you haven't seen, go take a look here!
