Oh my. I know I set up an account with picnik. LOL.... if only I could  remember my account password and login! It's a good idea to attach your name to the photo. It's beautiful.

Lindsey: They will resend it to you! I love picnik. I hardly ever post a photo that has not been there. Sometimes I forget to put the copyright directly on the photo.

Hi Joni,

I love your photo... it's beautiful how the background fades away.  You are so good with your camera... and I am always happy to view your photos. 

I'm looking forward to seeing more photos of Princess Mama and the gang when you visit there again.  I really enjoyed your post when you went to visit and painted all the ladies nails....  all the ladies looked so happy and I'm sure felt really good after their nail's got painted!!!

Bliz: My mother has white and pink oleander trees in her yard. I shot this right on the tree. Roy: We could use some of that rain in Texas. Wanna share?! :) Thank you, Dawn! You too ! Dorie: I normally go for color. I once purchased a bunch of PINK crepe myrtles only to plant them and find out at they were white. They grew into large, gorgeous trees! Unlearned to love them. Rob: it is really hard for me to stay silent anyway! :0) But I can do it! Linda: I love digital! I can shoot tons of photos hoping to get at least one really good shot!

Joni - is that the name of this beautiful plant?  White poison?  Seems like a horrible name for such a beautiful flower.

Joni, finally in comment #14 you mention that the White Poison flower is a White Oleander.  Now that, I think, is poisonous.  And the only reason I remember that... is from the movie of the same name. 

I would have been ok, though.  I don't think I have ever eaten any flower... or at least none that I know of.  LOL.

Thank you, Joann! I turned off the flash and let the light come in naturally.

Juli: It is an Oleander. Like the Pink one that I posted in Wordless Wednesday. It is a toxic flower. My momma calls it a poison plant. Thus, White Poison/Pink Poison. :O)

Endre: Just don't eat it!

Teral: Yes ma'am. I like the pink better! It's in Wordless Wednesday.

Thank you for re-posting this, Lloyd! :O) This makes me very happy!

Carolyn: So sorry! I posted a Pink Poison on Wednesday and was not thinking that someone new might see this one. It was explained in the comments that it is a toxic plant. My mom calls it the poison plant (she hates them!) and that is where I got the title of the photo. I don't hate them. Just don't serve them up for appetizer's! :O)

Joni -- I loved this pic..just lovely. I am glad you explained the 'poison' descriptor in your comment as I didn't understand that.  Thanks!
