Neil, that is a beautiful tree! Do you have the Emerald Ash Borer in the UK? I should have looked it up before posting because I'm not sure where it actually originated, but at any rate it's wreaking havoc with our ash trees.

I believe I'm going to have to look for a list of totally nontoxic plants, although I suspect it will be quite short! I believe tomato leaves are toxic, and rhubarb leaves are as well. I suppose it's a wonder so many humans have been able to survive over the years to overpopulate the planet as they have. And it would certainly be a good idea for all parents to teach their children not to eat anything that's growing outside unless they get the okay from a trusted adult (and I guess the TV presenter never learned that, either -- do you know who it actually was??)
