Drama, tension and a touch of romance by Masons Mind Menagerie
Thank you so much for taking part in the #Writephoto – POISONOUS PLANTS prompt.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows bright pinkish-red trumpet-shaped plants.
“Listen up, team! We have a small waterfall up ahead. Beyond that, we’ll drop into a smoother current and find a place to pull out for dinner.” Granger yelled over the roaring white water that churned beneath the yellow inflatable raft
“Heard, captain!” replied five of the six rafters.
“Bess, are you with us?” Granger tapped the girl on the shoulder. She was so lost in gazing at the banks whizzing by, she wasn’t even rowing with the others.
“Hey, Bess. Wake up!” said her friend Dave.
“Oops sorry! I was mesmerised by all the beautiful red bell-shaped flowers along the banks. It’s just so pretty over there.”
“No harm done. Those are rhododendrons. They’re rainforest shrubs. See how they choke out all the native plants here?” Granger explained with his deep green eyes focused on the river ahead. “Still they are lovely to look at during spring.”

Hi, KL, These vines are definitely pesky. I’m not willing to eat any to see if they are poisonous. According to one plant source, trumpet vines might cause a minor skin irritation. They are deadly to roses. They smother them, but they are vibrant and perennial, so very hard to destroy.
