This is hemlock. It has been confused with Queen Anne’s lace, yarrow and parsley before. Notice the purple splotches on the stem? This is a never ever ingest/burn/pick herb. I would rather people were fools with thornapple and belladonna than this plant.

Don’t forget its resemblance to giant hogweed (which is also nastily toxic)!

In Norwegian sea folklore, the Kraken is an enormous sea monster which would sometimes attack ships and feed upon the sailors. It was supposed to be capable of dragging down the largest ships and when submerging could suck down a vessel by the whirlpool it created. It is part octopus and part crab, although others refer to it as a giant squid or cuttlefish. (x)

We are like children building a sand castle. We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of colored glass. The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.
