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.

Found this little Crown of Thorns in the back garden of a little restaurant in Ajijic.

This color would look beautiful in a bouquet with Cee’s grape hyacinths!
Drying flower stalks, palm blossoms falling to the pool surface, crown of thorns in sparse bloom. Must be fall. https://ceenphotography.com/2017/03/18/flower-of-the-day-march-18-2017-peony-2/
