Wordless Wednesday - Colorful Hallucinogenic

 

Rhododendron, while being beautiful to the eye, have also, long been used in traditional medicine due to the plant’s anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective (prevents liver damage) qualities.

 

Rhododendron, however, are poisonous to grazing animals, more commonly horses, because of a toxin that is naturally in the plant’s pollen and nectar. Humans have also been known to become ill from eating honey made by bees feeding on Rhododendron; the honey from these plants has a slightly hallucinogenic effect.

 

Colorful Rhododendron

 

Now, you understand the title!   Happy Wednesday!

Thanks for the re-blog, Roy.  I was not aware of these issues pertaining to Rhododendrons.

Roy, A good re-blog about a beautiful flowering plant.  I bet many of the photos you take of flowers fall into this category.

Warm Up the Grill After a Trip to The Main Street Farmers & Artists Market 
It's grilling time at The Main Street Farmers and Artists  Market! Everyone is getting their aprons on and their barbecue spatulas out. The market is filled with tons of great options for your barbecue: sausages from Stone Feather Farm, whole portobello mushroomss from Homestead Farm, veggie packets made with fresh vegetables from Pheasant Hill Farm, all seasoned with herbs from Tuckey's Fruit and Vegetable Farm.   If you don't feel like cooking, pick up some BBQ from Seneca Smokehouse and take home a ready-cooked meal.  There is no limit to what one can find when roaming the market in search of grilling options.   The Main Street Farmers and Artists Market is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. under the Main Street Pavilion.
