Winter Aconites

Visible to anyone in the world

These winter aconites were photographed in the grounds of Wimpole Hall.


The plant is a serious poison that can cause cardiac arrest, which I didn't know and which surprised me. Another name for it is 'wolfsbane', apparently because it was once believed to be good for wolf bites.

When you are very young, you change faster than in the world around you,
And for your, time passes slowly.
But when you grow old, the world charges faster than you do,
Now time passes quickly for you.
