 When I was a little kid, my grandfather told me about nightshade.

He called it deadly nightshade.

He said if you ate it it would kill you.

So I never ate it and it never killed me.

I have wondered many times since if it really would kill me: it looks so much like a tomato with devilishly purple flowers; but I have never eaten one.

But I've taken a lot of pictures of them.

I think they are quite pretty.

Some of these are from Seattle and some are from Paris.

  1. I've long wondered why some members of this plant family are poisonous, and others are such popular foods? "Solanaceae"...The Nightshade Family.
