The Oleander Bloom

20080423 - Oleander - 2

This is the first bloom of the season from the oleander on my patio. As soon as I wrote this post title I thought of Orlando Bloom, but back to topic. This pretty plant came home with me at the end of last summer.  It was a risk, because it meant I had to protect it all during the winter.  But when I saw a big tropical plant for $3, well, it had to be mine.  Fortunately the patio plants did manage to survive the winter, with only one regretful casualty.

  1. Phenomenal job of mothering that one all winter. All your hard work paid off. Stunning! What lucky little patio plants they are.
