Alissa's Flowers


I don't know much about this type of spurge Alissa's growing here.
What I do know is, it's very pretty, and was supposedly named by
Egypt's King Juba II in honor of his physician. Apparently the doctor married
the daughter of Anthony & Cleopatra. At any rate, the sap of this plant
is a powerful laxative.

Makes you think, doesn't it?
