Physalis alkengii--Chinese Lantern

Physalis alkengii–Chinese Lantern

The leaves and unripe berries are poisonous. The reward: a beautiful, brilliant orange pod (calyx) as it forms, the  transformation into a net-like covering in the Fall with a medicinal berry inside. Lovely in all phases of its life!

Daily Gratitude: spending the day with a good friend; being greeted this morning with a cuppa; having a warm place to come home to

Quote of the Day: The journey is the reward. ~Taoist Proverb

Daily Gratitude: yoga exercises, reading, blue skies

Quote of the Day: Married to a soul and a mind, the body provides us with carnal pleasures and serves to reflect our overall spiritual and mental condition like a polished mirror…. To the extent that we can discover our own, unique balance, we are whole… and once whole, we can truly dance like the free spirits we are.          ~Garri Garripoli
