Crown of Thorns: Flower of the Day, February 25, 2019

I should have balked when I saw that the manicurist had put crown of thorns blossoms into the soak water for my manicure, but instead I decided she must know what she was doing. Yes, I let her soak my hands and only when I got home and developed the sores on my hand that still haven’t healed weeks later, did I make use of Google to reaffirm what I already knew—that crown of thorns sap is poisonous and possibly lethal when ingested by animals, caustic to eyes and skin.  I’m sure she just added it because it was pretty, but its effects are not.

For Cee’s FOTD prompt.

      It is just one little rash on one hand with two little wounds. May not have been caused by the crown of thorns or might have been two bites irritated by it. Just made me wonder as they don’t seem to want to heal.
