    It’s good to know this, we have some oleanders, and I like them. Love your image, too, it’s very well done.

    Beautiful photo of the oleander with the shallow depth of field.
    The framing is perfect.

    Lovely selective focus in this shot. I remember reading where women would put the leaves in tea to poison their husbands!
