Stinkhorns and roses in the rain. Or phallus and posies!

Around Navasola after the rain there seems to be an abundance of mushrooms including these which attract flies and are supposed to be edible! After seeing so many flies on them any desire to eat them has gone!It seems the dear flies are being exploited by a cunning plan and Phallus Impudicus spreads its  spores on the feet of the flies! But the  rose is struggling to come out. I thought it was another poor purchase as it didn’t flower again after April BUT it is in these parts a very vibrant winter flowering rose.image
