(90) "Nightshade" 6/15/10
Commonly referred to as Bittersweet Nightshade, it also has been called Deadly Nightshade. Despite the leaves and unripened fruits producing a poisonous alkaloid, the toxin is not fatal. This plant was said to be used to counteract witchcraft long ago.
Thanks to everyone for the generous comments on yesterdays butterfly; I really don't know how some of you capture them so well :) Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
