Beautiful but Deadly

This flowering bush is commonly seen throughout the semi tropics but is native to North Africa. Oleander Nerium comes in colours ranging from red to pink. It beautiful and tempting to pick for bouquets. However do not touch! It causes skin rashes to the touch. Worse the juices therefrom are deadly if ingested. One might be tempted to pick with protective gloves but this is not worth chancing especially if children might come in contact wherever it might be placed.
