Deadly Nightshade

Do not mistaken these berries for cherry tomatoes, crabapples, or lily of the valley seeds! These seeds have finally ripe, and the flowers had gone a long time ago. These are the berries from the Deadly Nightshade flowers.

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.
~Erich Fromm

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
~Golda Meir

The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed, from the domination of outward conditions.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another.

There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
~Mother Teresa

  1. What beautiful photos and what a wonderful reminder that all that is beautiful may not be healthy or good, but they are indeed beautiful.

  2. Pretty berries - but just to look.

  3. Those berries are beautiful. Had no idea they belong to the deadly nightshade.

  4. Pretty red berries for Ruby Tuesday! I don't know anything about nightshade. I'll have to look it up.

    thanks for stopping by this morning ~

  5. Those deadly berries do resemble cherry tomatoes! All the quotes are interesting and new to me, my favorite is the one by Aesop.

  6. Oh...they do look like they're just waiting to be picked! Thanks for the warning!

  7. Lovely and deadly.
    Words filled with wisdom.
    Golda Meier says it all for me.

  8. They look exactly like the lily of the valley berries you had here the other day. I'm glad I don't have to make the decision which is which.

  9. They look so pretty, what a shame that they're deadly.

  10. IcyBC, so they are poisonous RED berries, eh? Still a good choice for Ruby Tuesday! :)

  11. they look lovely although they are deadly and i loved the quotes a lot

  12. deadly nightshade flower, that's quite a name for such lovely berries.and no,i wouldn't even touch the cuties, i was pre-warned...lol!

    lovely quotes!

  13. The pics were really good. Thanks for the warning though. I will not go near them if I see them.

  14. Excellent shot of the climbing nightshade berries!

  15. Icy, they so much resemble cherry tomatoes. It just goes to show you it's the inside that matters.

  16. Are these edible Icy? they are so shiny and looks so tasty. :)

  17. great choice for RT. i love the way you captured them..

    take care

  18. They may look sweet but they are not to eat. :-) Great pics!

  19. As is so often the case with attractive plants, they can be lethal. It is the atropine component of this one that is so dangerous, I believe!

  20. Beautiful red berries, one of the look but don't touch kind.

  21. Are those edible or poisonous?

  22. Thank you everyone for your support and comment!

    Ayie--It's not edible..

  23. Oooooh, i'll take note of that! tnx

  24. We had some deadly nightshade along our back fence and just reading that made me remember my Mother's warnings not to eat the berries. They do look like they should taste good though..Thank you for visiting my RT post..I am late getting around... Michelle
