Crinum Asiaticum

When I go through the names of the plants,many times they reminded me of the magic vocabulary in Harry Potter Stories like ‘Oculus reparo’, ‘expecto patronum’,  and ‘wingardium leviosa’ etcetera.

This flowering plant is commonly known as Poisonous Bulb and also Spider Lily.

This is an ornamental plant of warmer regions.

The entire plant is said to be toxic.

Pick your poison

“It’s no fairy tale,

Some people are an elixir, others are a venom, you must learn to distinguish-who will empty your existence, staining you with their crude poison, and who-with their aura,will ignite and enrich your soul”  Clairel Estevez

Thank you.

          1. His thoughts on G-d are based on Jewish learning and Jewish religious outlook on the world, although colored by Hellenism prevalent in his times, especially in Alexandria, the center of cosmopolitan learning. Still, he was an observant Jew, descendant of High Priests, relative by marriage to the last Jewish Princess Berenice. Unfortunately, most of what we know of his life, other than from his own writings and the official records of his participation in the Jewish delegation to Caligula is from Josephus’ Judean Wars, which is universally considered less than a valid source. Josephus himself was Princess Berenice’ first cousin, thus also related to Philo by marriage.
