Yew


Many of you will be familiar with the fact that the English long bow was traditionally made from the wood of the yew tree, some of you may also be familiar with the 'fact' that the yew tree is poisonous, its seeds, leaves and perhaps even the smoke from burning its wood. And this is true yew can be deadly poisonous but these tempting red berries that apearing at this time of year actualy arent poisonous at all, the seeds in their centres are and it wouldn't take many of them to land you in hospital or worse but the berry itself, which is little more than sugary syrup, is fine to eat and actually quite tasty.

Do be careful with this one though.
