Today was the first time I stood in line to see and smell an item that reeks of a dead body.
A beautiful day for it, too.
Apparently, this beauty only lasts about 36 hours; hence the rush.
The picture on the sign indicates that though this flower just started blooming last evening, it has already lost some of its, ahem, vigor.
Smell was bad, but probably not as bad as last night.
Since it was a glorious Fall day, I include these bonus shots of the Japanese garden. (All the photos in this post may be clicked to enlarge.)
What did you do on your lunch hour?
