Oleander

If there’s a plant/flower that reminds me of my childhood is this one, the oleander. Funnily enough, I’ve only recently learnt how toxic it is. My family has a couple back in Portugal both well over 20 years old. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos of them, especially of the white one, when it catches the sunlight like this. So delicate and beautiful.

  1. I still don’t know exactly how toxic it is, and how it can harm us or our pets. My dog is always careful not to step on the discarded blossoms on the floor beneath the plant. And there are so many around here, of various colours, everywhere you look.
