Murderer's paradise

Look at all the poisonous plants that grow in my state. When I was a kid we had a big Yellow Jessamine (my father called it an "allamanda") vine growing in the front yard, so I knew about that one. The Rosary Pea (I can't remember what we called it) was also the source of those wonderful scary stories kids tell each other, about the kid they had "heard about" who died from doing something stupid like eating a poisonous plant.

Who calls an allamanda vine a "Yellow Jessamine"? Freak.

Just clogging up your comments section, waiting for my coffee to brew this cold Sunday morning.
