Week 4 Oct 5th - Oct 11th

| |

This week I have a sad kind of flower for those of you that follow history. I present to you Euphorbia Milii also known as "The Crown of Thorns" She flowers all year long to show her beauty maybe to seek forgiveness. Not only would you steer clear of her sap, it causes a skin reaction very similar to poison ivy. It is also very toxic and used to kill and stun fish. Please enjoy this sharp and toxic beauty.

I've never seen these crown of thorns! Love the look and color of these flowers! So, hard to imagine it's so dangerous!

Lovely little flower. Same family as Pointsettia--and with the same sticky white sap. MB

I have a plant like this.. on my windowsill. I'm glad I read your post, now I know that it's poisonous. As if its thorns were not enough?!
