Pink Oleander


Pink flowers at my neighbor's garden.  The delicate petals were bruised by the rain but it didn't diminish its beauty.  I hope somebody would identify this flower.

Maria (Photo Cache) identified this flower as Oleander. Thank you, Maria!
Local name:  Adelfa

I forgot the name. I featured the white variety before.

I love flowers too even as they fade!

Beautiful photos.
But be careful, because the flowers and leaves of the oleander are poisonous.
