Konjac Kraziness

Silly me, I completely blew my proud count on the last garden centered post. There are not six corpse flowers blooming near my front door, but eight! I initially missed the two tallest ones basically within the canopy of my weeping crabapple tree and then failed to recall the two little ones now fading closer to the house.

So I opened a window and took a better photo. Unfortunately, the plants' stink attracted a big flat housefly continually buzzing around my living room. I hate killing them. So we'll see if I can lure the insect out.

Are you forgetful like me? Especially when it regards to math, I have no head, forgetting a figure a moment later. Be well!

  1. 6...8... What's the difference? (Well, 2, but we'll forgive you.)

  3. I do not think in numbers. I do not like math. *augh*
    Corpse flowers? The ones that smell like rotting flesh? Near your front door? oh, no, no, no...

    1. I know! ~grin~ The placement proved ill planned out of ignorance. ~shakes head~ But the foliage looks so beautiful all summer and they positively thrive there, so I never had the heart to try transplanting them. Have a lovely day!

  4. Those pesky flies drive me crazy! Especially when they buzz about as if they own the place :) Have a lovely weekend.

    1. I'm with you on the flies. Somehow, I never got bothered by the beast that got inside. But stinkbugs are another issue. I find one inside almost every day, and the imported insects are bad for farmers. What can you do besides destroy the ones that infiltrate the home? I hope you have a wonderful weekend, too, my dear! Thanks for the kind word.

  5. Now you need a flycatcher plant. Goes well with corpse lilies, I'd think.

    1. Ooh! Excellent idea! Since childhood I've tried to grow the flycatchers a few times and never succeeded but now might be the time. ~grin~ I hope you are well.

  6. I am not familiar with those plants but between the fragrance and the flies I suspect I will keep it that way. Thanks for the info though.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, my dear, and making me smile. I spoke to a friend while sitting outside yesterday evening and the smell still overwhelmed me a bit. :) Oops.

  7. I don't have to kill flies. My feisty kitten, Midnight, does it for me. He swears he is a tiny panther! He acts it sometimes, too! Thank you for the nice word about my excerpt on Kathleen's blog. :-)

  8. Oh yes, I'm very forgetful, especially when it comes to numbers. I love this time of year, though, when everything's blooming!

  9. I'm terribly forgetful- in fact I've forgotten what I was going to write! Ah well.
