All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire
While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of

A rare corpse flower that smells like rotting flesh blooms for a second time in less than 12 months at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
*The corpse flower is endemic to western Sumatra, an island in southeast Asia in western Indonesia, where it grows in rainforests on limestone hills. Sumatra has a wide range of plant and animal species but has lost almost half of its tropical rainforest in the last 35 years.
It was first scientifically described in 1878 by Italian botanist Odoardo Beccari. The plant flowers only infrequently in the wild and even more rarely when cultivated.
