Pink and White Oleander

A sidewalk winds down the street in front of my neighborhood. It's planted with trees and oleander bushes. I've been walking at night because the air is cooler. The oleander bushes were begging to be photographed. The center of the pink flower looks like it is candy striped.

Beautiful! Being in Ohio, I really know nothing about oleander except that they're poisonous... is that right? They look like they should have a divine fragrance--any scent to them?

They are more beautiful to look at than to smell. And yes, they are poisonous. It is amazing how so many of the beautiful flowers are also extremely poisonous.
