Very nice, Peter! Although I guess the smell isn't that nice, isn't it?

What astounding and bizarre flowers!  Thank you for posting - I've never seen anything like them.
The last one looks kind of... sore.   ;D ;D

An extremely unpleasant bad smell led me to Stapelia gigantea with its really
giant flowers- 34 cm from tip to tip. Many fans were also around - flies in masses!
