Saturday Sky

This beautiful pink shrub is an Oleaner Punctatum. When we were kids, these plants were in nearly every garden..... now it is unusual to see it anywhere .... maybe it might be due in part that all parts of the plant are extremely poisonous. This shrub is not in my garden but in the garden opposite our house. So I am fortunate to look out onto it and admire the lovely flowers.

Very pretty, but as you say, poisonous so not good around kids, though we all managed to stay alive didn't we? hehe. But then again, we did as we were told, and stayed away from things.
