This flower is found in our garden these days. Who would believe that such a beauty is full of poison?

  1. Dear Heidrun,
    I guess your are right: In Nature it is often so, that the most beautiful and richly coloured things are poisonous. But the opposite is not always the case. Please see my new post about Bufo bufo.
    With love,
    Per

  2. Ist das nicht oft so in der Natur, dass die schönsten und farbenfrohen Dinge giftig sind?
    Liebe Grüsse
    Heidrun
