An encounter with Daphne mezereum

Ran into one yesterday while exploring the coast and picking mushrooms. Daphne mezereum (February daphne)is said to be highly poisonous, with five berries able to kill a grown man. It causes swelling of the walls of air passages and a rather unpleasant death from suffocation. No thanks. The post about Daphne in Alexandra’s Facebook resulted in quite a discussion.
