    The centre has opened a little more and now it has a smell... it smells like honey.

    That's really surprises me. They have such a rep for malodorous fragrances that hearing there is at least one out there that smells pleasant is kind of astounding.

    Cool flower, btw.

    There were a succession of flowers after that one. The plant is on a windowsill at the top of the stairs and there was a pleasant waft every time I passed, for many weeks... definately doesn't deserve the same reputation as the rest of its family
