Well, WoopTeeDoo!

Lois the Corpse Flower has finally bloomed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.  Crowds began to arrive early on to appreciate the rare event and the foul-smelling plant did not disappoint.
It's a mix between fuzzy lasagna, days-old tuna and wilted lettuce -- so, the office refrigerator.
Let me jot this down:  putrid-smelling plant equals audience.  Got it.

I've been waiting for one of my favorite plants to blossom as well.  It's a rose bush that I planted earlier this year.  It's taking its time but the few flowers I've gotten so far have been a treat.  The color, somewhere between yellow and beige, and the aroma are totally awesome.  I can't believe I'm actually waiting to get a whiff of this thing.

This is actually the first rose bush I've planted ever, hence my doting.
