Welcome to this week's {floral friday}!

These pictures of this beautiful star-shaped flower were taken during our latest trip to the botanical garden. Unfortunately that was the last visit with our season tickets.. But I'm sure we'll be back nonetheless. ;)

A few facts about the Daphne:

  • According to Nova Scotia Museum, some researchers say extracts from Daphne may have the potential for treating leukemia.
  • The daphne plant’s leaves, flowers, and berries are poisonous. A berry, even if chewed and not swallowed, causes burning in the mouth and throat. {source}
  • The Daphne Bholua is also called Nepalese paper plant and Jacqueline Postill.

I'm partying here! ❤
