A couple weekends ago I went to the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) in the Bronx to check out the ready-to-bloom corpse flower.
The flower is huge, the brown crinkled leaf seen above was about the size of my head or slightly bigger.
It was too late into the summer to see most flowers blooming but the cacti were great!
It was an incredibly bright and sunny day which was great for photos but I was really really hot. The only place to cool down was the cafe but we went to see plants not ice coffees so I had to sweat and deal with it. PS. I hate being hot!
