The oleander tree/bush we have is blooming and blooming.
I like the way they look at night.
It's interesting to me........
the tree/bush is used in this area a lot for landscaping and to
line city streets.  
Some of them do well, bloom, grow and get very large.
Some wither, dry up, die.
Since trees don't have a soul, thoughts or a heart,
they don't reject water and sunlight.
They don't say NO to the things that will help them grow.
It just happens.
But as Christians we can say NO.
We have a choice, a will.
Our heart can lead us astray.
We can choose paths that make us wilt as Christians.

Proverbs 4:26

Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

We DO have choices, don't we?!

Do oleander blossoms have a pleasant (sweet) scent?

As far as I know, they do not smell pretty. They just LOOK pretty! Parts of it are poisonous, too.

Wilt ... is the perfect description for taking the wrong path....I have to say I admire your ability to photograph flowers...they are absolutely beautiful.
