The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
April Was Second-Best Month Ever For Columbus Home Sales
April was a good month to sell a house in Ohio.
The latest figures form the Ohio Association of Realtors say April home sales were up 20 percent compared to the same month last year. The report marks the 22nd straight month of sales gains, the longest stretch of uninterrupted growth in 16 years.
Columbus sales were up 36.7 percent compared to last April, although prices fell slightly.
“That price point may have dropped a little bit because those are the properties that were not able to sell over the last few years,” says Chris Pedon, president of the Columbus Association of Realtors.
Pedon says the number of homes sold by Columbus realtors last month was the second-highest total ever for the region, ranking only behind April of 2004.
