You may remember about a year ago I went to court, and I was horrified to find the deadly poisonous castor bean plant growing all over the front of the courthouse. That is my first two pictures. This is where the poison ricin comes from, and just one pretty bean from this plant will kill a child. Here is a link back to that post. I told the clerks of the court what it was, and this spring I was delighted to find that they had taken it all out and replaced it with these pretty stripe flowers, petunias I think. The poisonous plant was beautiful, but it's beauty was beguiling and I'm glad it's gone.
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may beguile you with enticing words."
