Chicago Bound and a Wild Plant!

I'm heading out tomorrow for a girls' weekend to Chicago. I'm so excited! We're going to hit several tea spots, including tea at the famous "grand" Drake hotel. Expect lots of stories and pictures when I return next week.

In the mean time, check out this wild carion plant! We've had it over 2 years and this is the first time it has bloomed. The DH (dear hubby) was a proud papa! By the way, the exotic-looking blossoms smell like rotting meat! (But you have to get your nose up close.) Perfect for Halloween.

So cool - my son would love that plant! It reminds me of the carnivorous plant books that he brings home from the library. :-)
