The purple penis flower


The purple penis flower

The first time I saw these blooms in our garden (for I didn't plant them, you see), I pictured the former homeowners leeringly guiding unsuspecting young couples to their "flower collection" at their backyard barbecue. Hard to imagine a good lapsed Lutheran girl like myself letting these exhibitionists propagate, but damn. It would be a shame to let them go. It's also a shame they don't vibrate.

I don't think I'll be able to eat Spring Mix for a while. Though, luckily, I've never found a phallus shaped thorn in my salad.
