Still more flowering plants to admire and learn. Google tells me this one is oleander.

Oleanders have bright, dark pink flowers, long, sword-shaped dark green leaves.

    The stuff is all over the Southwest. Grows like weeds. In fact it’s actually banned in some areas because of not only the pollen because it’s so poisonous. If some idiot decides to burn it, watch out! In Turkey, we found out the root sap glows in the dark. Long story…Anyway, it’s one desert bush we DON’T have in our yard, despite the beauty from a distance.
