My wife had a cactus for years. It's a cactus that is known to have a large flower, even if it's a small cactus, and the flower is beautiful.The cactus never bloomed, until today.
It's beautiful, isn't it? There is one problem: it smells like roadkill. It smells like an armadillo, baked on the shoulder of a hot asphalt highway for three day. Not only will it nauseate you, the green carrion flies gather on the flower as though it was rotten meat.
Still, I like it. It's one of those unique things that gives pause, and appreciation.
