because without the GrammyCam,
which she so generously sent me,
I would not have a camera at all.
SEYMOUR GETS HIS BLOOM ON
NIGHT BLOOMING CEREUS
The bloom was bigger than a softball and the smell was very strong, super sweet, like forty million honeysuckle.... almost unbearably strong. The smell filled the whole house.... and that was only one bloom, I can only imagine what multiple blooms must smell like.
The thing inside of it there looks to me like a spider - I thought that it must be some sort of lure to get some creature in there after the "spider" to pollinate it, but I have read that they are pollinated by Sphinx Moths who are attracted to the scent, not the lure... but I still think that spider looking lure is there for some reason that they just don't understand yet. Has to be.
This guy photographed his bloom opening up in time lapse, and added Robin Trower as a soundtrack! Excellent!
This is what Seymour's flower looks like this morning
Then GOD said,
I give you every seed-bearing plant
on the face of the whole earth
and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.
