A 4 inches by 5.5 inches glossy portrait oriented greeting card featuring the deadly Monkshood flower, aka, Aconite, with its bright purple blooms, against a backdrop of gold and green foliage in early Autumn.
I took this photograph in Calais, Vermont, in October of 2017, or maybe 2014.
On the back of this card is featured a poem by Agatha Christie about Aconite, written long enough ago, 1924, that it is now in the public domain:
“From the Borgias time to the present day, Their power has been proved and tried! Monk’s Hood blue, Called Aconite, and the Deadly Cyanide!” By Agatha Christie, featured in her book, “In a Dispensary” pub. 1924.
Also on the back of this card is some text I wrote about in which mysteries Agatha Christie features this floral poison:
“Aconite is featured as the poison of choice in Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple Mysteries: “4:50 from Paddington” & “They Do It with Mirrors.”
Also on the back is my name and website.
This card, like all my cards except my accordion cards and some of my holiday cards, is blank inside.
Like all my cards, this card comes with a corresponding white envelope free of charge.
