Carpe Diem Field of Flowers: Sunflower and Foxglove

at this time of year
sunflowers line the roadside
golden soldiers march

too much is toxic
but given in small doses
it can help a heart


The cardiac medication digitalis is made from the foxglove plant. Patients taking digitalis must be monitored closely for symptoms of toxicity.
