Gorgeous photos! oleanderReplyDeleteRepliesReplyUnknown6:02 PMI have no clue what they are - at first I thought a type of Iris - but they are delicious!!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnnie6:40 PMTammmie 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) ...!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplysandyshares6:47 PMthe leaf is oleanderish bu tthey resemble the gomaelia too spelling atrocious..skprettyReplyDeleteRepliesReplysunnymama7:03 PMI don't know what they are but they're beautiful :)ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCarver7:30 PMThose 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.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySylvia K7:59 PMWhat a treat for the eyes indeed, Sandy! Exquisite flowers!Have a great week!SylviaReplyDeleteRepliesReplySquirrelQueen9:20 PMWhatever their names they are beautiful. Great photos, the pink is my favorite.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyUnknown9:31 PMSandy,your beautiful flower pictures are from the Nerium Oleander plant.
