I found this on Robin's blog and I decided to try the "15 words or less" poem.
This photo came from Laura.
Here is my entry for 15 words or less poem:
All hot and pink
What do I think?
You must be all
poisonous and stink.
I have a cactus plant that puts out a sort of beautiful bloom every year
that I will find a picture of to show. It is called a "dead meat" flower.
Its name says it all. The first time I saw it, first I smelled it. I was
walking by and wondered, "What is that dead smell?" Then I saw
the flower, all pretty and pink and big. A closer inspection revealed
the foul smell. I looked up information on it and a cactus flower like this
smells bad to attract flies from miles around. I have had several of these
flowers through the years and I sadly must break them off and take them
outside to attract flies there instead of inside my house!
I found a similar picture on the internet but my flower is much prettier
