|Auckland Domain Gardens. ♥|
Today Jenny and I went to see the corpse flower at the Auckland Domain Wintergarden after I heard about it in class! By the time school finished, the flower was pretty much wilted but I didn't really mind HAHAHA. I mean, the corpse flower was dying. Pretty suitable situation if you ask me.
But yeah, we didn't get to experience the smell of rotting flesh but it was still pretty cool. I mean this was the first time ever that the corpse flower has ever blossomed in New Zealand - and we got to see it before it died hehe.
Corpse flowers tend to only bloom once every 7-10 years so it was pretty exciting to see one in Auckland. I've seen them before in wildlife/nature documentaries but I never expected to see one in person! I've always thought that to find rare and exotic things like this, you'd have to venture into the deepest parts of the Amazon or journey into the unknown in Africa HAHAHA.
Anyways, time for photos!

|Look how huge it is! It's like a giant, ugly tulip wtf.|
|Waiting to see it up close!|
|Heaps of people came to take photos of it! (Like me!)|
|Look at the size difference!|
|You can see how the petals are all wilted.|
