Crazy colors ~ Oleander – shining like the Mediterranean sun

This morning, I took this picture for a crazy color challenge while walking. The walk made my view of this beautiful oleander even more beautiful. For seaside resorts, oleander is a wonderful plant: it blooms for a long time, withstand the scorching sun and drought and salt in the coastal air. That is why in the place where I spend my holidays I see the oleander at every turn. Unfortunately, it is one of the most dangerous ornamental plants.It is known for species that contain pharmacologically useful ingredients, such as rauvolphy, and toxic cardiac glycosides. Due to the content of toxic substances, some species are still used in Africa today for various rituals and for the preparation of arrow poison.
