What's that smell?

No one told me that this crazy alien looking, Fritillaria imperialis smells like just Cannabis Sativa! Holy moly, the whole studio wreaked like a college dorm room. I personally was not offended by the skunky stench, but my husband couldn't take it and begged to have me remove them. No way! They cost me a pretty penny and looked so great in my green vintage ceramic. Don'tcha think?

The smell didn't bother you huh? I've got a great brownie recipe you should try. I'm just kidding. I can't really touch the stuff, and if I ever did I fell asleep almost immediately, and who has time for that? : >

I think they are very pretty especially in those containers. I personally like that particular smell but My Husband hates it! Must run in the family!!! Love, Joanie

Pretty but I can't have them in my shop - no one will buy them because of the smell. Last flower I had that issue with was mimosa - I couldn't give the stuff away!!!
