This past week I had the privilege of staying in Grand Rapids with Experience Grand Rapids and exploring a number of the most interesting and beautiful places in the city. One of my favorites was Frederik Meijer Gardens, which is home to a number of elusive, difficult to grow, and completely captivating plants from around the world. Recently, one of the only Corpse Flowers in North America bloomed at FMG, bringing guests and fragrance connoisseurs from around the nation to admire its foul, rotting flesh like scent. By the time we arrived, it smelled much less like decomposition and more like old Chinese takeaway, but it was beautiful none the less!
Other, less fragrant plants thrive within Frederik Meijer Gardens, and the photos I captured of them have since become some of my most prized botanical compositions. If you’re in need of a new computer background or phone background, feel free to use one of the images below (but please don’t crop off my watermark, or publish these images).
