I wanted to tell this story so I finally broke my “no pictures of my face rule”…and instead of a nice selfie, I post a picture of me laughing my derriere off.
My exact conversation with Gaston:
"Today is my birthday!"
"Well, come and get it!" *beckons* "Which birthday is this?"
*throws out his arms and flexes with an enormous grin* “PERFECT!!!”
The Death Rose (Rosa calvaria) is a rare and mysterious plant species. Beautiful when blooming, the buds form skull like faces when wilting.
Biologists still don’t understand how the Death Rose forms these shocking designs as they are impossible to grow in lab experiments.
