I HAVE read that such plants as produce a cruciform flower are all alike free from poison.
Life has its blossoming season preparatory to its season of fruit.
And many lives by bereavement, disappointment, pain, hope deferred, blossom, so to say, with crosses.
A choice and blessed blossom, if it correspond with nature's emblem and harbor no venom. For one day the cross petals will drop off, and only the good fruit remain.
