Annoying Flower Update

Lois, the HMNS Corpse Flower has turned out to be more annoying than stinky.  We watched and waited everyday for her to bloom.  She did not.

She is making progress.  Here is what she looked like she first started to bloom:

July 5

July 6

And here is what she looked like this weekend:
Saturday, July 17:

Sunday, July 18:

She really has grown dramatically, but her progress has slowed to a snail's pace.  We are starting to doubt Lois is going to bloom at all.  How disappointing it will be if she turns out to be a dud! 

Ready or not, we'll probably go see her on Thursday.  Until then we'll be sending her this telepathic message:  Bloom, Lois, bloom!
