Franklin Park Zoo, Dorchester, MA: We interrupt your lunch to bring you this special news report from your Official Caterpickles Junior Photojournalist: Morticia is in bloom!
And even though it meant waiting in a really long line when it’s hotter than Texas outside, with nothing but a Popsicle to cool her down after, your intrepid Official Caterpickles Junior Photojournalist (aka The Five-Year-Old) was on the scene this morning to get the shot.
The bloom will last 24-48 hours, after which Morticia will die down and end up like Fester here.
A Final Note: The Five-Year-Old is pleased to report that there was hardly any smell at all. None that you’d notice over the blistering heat, anyway.
