Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

Physalis alkengii--Chinese Lantern

Physalis alkengii–Chinese Lantern

The leaves and unripe berries are poisonous. The reward: a beautiful, brilliant orange pod (calyx) as it forms, the  transformation into a net-like covering in the Fall with a medicinal berry inside. Lovely in all phases of its life!

Daily Gratitude: spending the day with a good friend; being greeted this morning with a cuppa; having a warm place to come home to

Quote of the Day: The journey is the reward. ~Taoist Proverb
