Turkey vultures AND bulbs

	For years I grew the Dead Horse Arum ( Helicodicerous musciverous) at the far end of the garden - a couple hundred feet away from the house until a severe winter killed all the bulbs. It lives up to its name and smells.. let’s say ‘intensely’.   One warm summer day when the Arum was in full bloom we noticed a couple turkey vultures over head and one actually landed in the yard a few feet from the Arum. No damage and nothing to eat. It flew off.

	I just got a couple new bulbs to try again. The flowers and foliage are very interesting and unlike any other ’semi-hardy' bulb in the garden, but you do need a strong nose or a deep garden.		Best		Jim
