Calling a poison expert directly saves precious time. If the poison center determines that you need emergency transportation, it will bring in a 911 operator. Just have the number programmed into your cell phone for when there is no time to hunt through telephone books . . . on or off line.

Featured Plant

Common Violet

Viola

violet in bloom

A spring blooming perennial with heart-shaped leaves. These plants like shade and require little attention. They spread, sometimes aggressively, so situate them with care. Under an oak tree where nothing thrives they may be ideal.

Patches can be divided; water as needed after moving.

According to Wikipedia: "One quirk of some Viola is the elusive scent of their flowers; along with terpenes, a major component of the scent is a ketone compound called ionone, which temporarily desensitises the receptors of the nose, thus preventing any further scent being detected from the flower until the nerves recover."
