My Mother has always liked Oleanders. My big brother planted an Oleander for her late last year where she could see it daily from her kitchen table. She was thrilled. She was going outside every two days and watering the thing.
The sad thing is that she never got a chance to see it bloom. So, I took a couple of pictures last week, had one printed off yesterday, and sent it (along with a couple of other pictures) to her. At least, she'll get to see that it did indeed bloom.
This post is mostly for my big brother, who I thought would like to see a picture of it when it was blooming. I thank him for making Mother happy.
