Antidote

This is a wildflower called Velvet Bean. The creeper has now hundreds of these purple floral garlands. But beware! If you touch the creeper,  you will start scratching yourself for hours!
The velvetty, brown haired beans are even more dangerous. They are called Mad Beans in Kenya because of their scratchiness.
 The vine has completely covered a roadside tree.
The plant has many medicinal uses in Ayurveda and Siddha forms of medicine. Its leaves are used for treating cobra bite, as well as Parkinson's disease.
Our World Tuesdayhttp://ourworldtuesdaymeme.blogspot.com has many beautiful pictures and intersting stories.
