Florida flowers: The ornate oleander

I have such a backlog of beautiful flower photos on my phone. In Florida there are awesome flower photo ops that occur all the time.

Oleander is one of the most popular and well-known flowers in the world. It’s so prolific across the globe that its native origin is not known, although it’s thought to be native to the middle east.

Oleander is highly toxic. Do not give it to your spouse no matter how much they may get on your nerves sometimes. Seriously, I see that happening on true crime files all the time. Just get a divorce. I’m sure your spouse would prefer that over being dead! And you won’t go to prison. It’s win-win for both.

I always like to recognize and appreciate my fellow bloggers, so here are some more awesome oleander photos that you should check out.

  2. Oleanders are beautiful 😊❤ It is popular in Kerala too. We call it Arali and is used in temples as one of the main flowers in ritualistic worship. White, rose, pink, and yellow varieties are the common ones here.
