These lovelies bloomed along the edge of my parents' front yard in North Carolina. Can you tell me what they are?

  9. I know exactly what they are. One is a lovely pink flower with a shadow of a leaf showing through.

    The other one is a lovely white flower.

    Didn't know that botany was part of the chemical engineering curriculum did you?

  11. A beautiful soothing post for a Sunday morning. I say that we should name this flower "Sandy". I'm sure that your parents would go for it.

  15. why I do believe these beauties you have captured are oleanders. I also believe they are something one would not like to consume as in poisonous. Gorgeous photos! oleander

  16. I have no clue what they are - at first I thought a type of Iris - but they are delicious!!

  17. Tammmie Lee was very correct. The first one is definitely an oleander...I presume the second one too, couldn't see the leaves on it as easily....but beware, as Tammie said, they are deadly poisonous..not just the flowers, leaves also...
    Honored to stand in line beside you on the sign in page for Today's Flowers this morning (here in Australia) ...!

  20. Those are beautiful Sandy. I noticed someone said oleander. I wasn't sure but that's what I was guessing because I know from visiting the NC coast there is a lot of oleander and what I've seen is similar. Then when I saw someone say it was oleander I googled and sure enough that's it.

  22. Whatever their names they are beautiful. Great photos, the pink is my favorite.

  23. Sandy,
    your beautiful flower pictures are from the Nerium Oleander plant.

    It is one of the most poisonous plants in the world and contains numerous toxic compounds, many of which can be deadly to people, especially young children.
    Be careful,

  29. Beautiful, as always.

  30. Yup. Oleander. I had a row of them against my front porch banister, which I asked my Dad to remove. Pretty, yes, but poisonous with cats and children in the neighborhood is not a good combination!

  35. Thanks for sharing these beauties Sandy!

    Also, thanks for all the "adventures" you share about you and your daughter. I love reading these stories. I miss my own mom so much and all the things we did together. It's nice to read about the strong bond and not to mention all the fun, that you share with your special girl!


    Hugs, G
