Rafflesia: The Largest Flower in the World.

While on a tour in Borneo , my guide was tipped off by another guide about a Rafflesia in some people's garden. So there I went  in the middle of the day to the home of some local residents to see what was growing in their backyard.They were really nice and apparently used to foreigners visiting them.

 These flowers can't be cultivated ,it takes at least six months for them to bloom and they decompose two or three days after blooming ,so they are  a really rare sight and when one grows somewhere everybody rushes to see it. I was lucky to be able to see both the bud and the flower.
