Nature’s warning

DAY 185 (7 OCTOBER) – European spindle (Euonymous europaeus) (Farnham)

Spotted these disturbing berries on a bush by the art college today. It’s unusual for nature to offer such clashing colours, so I wasn’t surprised to find these are poisonous.

Best thing about them is their other common names: fusanum, ananbeam and shemshad rasmi (Iranian).
