I've decided to run my day in reverse a bit.
Just for a week.
Just to see if I like it.
So today I rode my bike with Fireman... first thing.
We rode to the Chicago Botanic Gardens as this CORPSE plant is about to bloom.
So it's a big deal here.
The plant takes years to get to this stage.
It blooms at night and releases a stench.
Apparently this is not to be missed.
Do you know that CHICAGO means Stinky onion or something like that in Native American Speak?
Given the fact that I used to have to work night shift, (real night shift ......
The kind where you want to die at 0400 every morning),
I won't stay up to see this plant in bloom.
That and the fact that so many people are expected to go and I don't like crowds for good smells let alone bad.
If you only do something half ways on your bucket list,
Does it count?
So you should know that the blossom will go another 5 feet into the air on the magical night it decides to bloom.
Have you ever?
I'm knitting an orange sock with next to no cuff.
I think Caffeine Girl sent me this yarn for a contest win a ways back.
It is wonderful hand dyed malabrigo.
The baby blanket is moving along, but getting heavy so I need a light sock to alternate with and keep my hands happy.
Do you post in the morning or afternoon or evening?
What do you prefer?
