I visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden the other weekend to see the corpse flower (titan arum or Amorphophallus titanum). It was the first time this kind of flower has bloomed in New York City in over 70 years. I caught it at the tail end; for more information, check out the BBG web site. It was pretty incredible. The flower was over five feet tall. (These are not “fake” photos; the flower really was that big.)
As always, I enjoyed taking other photos around the garden.
