Day One Hundred Thirty Five ~ Change For The Better

Since oleander is a toxic poison to both humans and animals and now that I have a new puppy running around the yard, I have been in a constant state of worry he will eat the oleander (he has no filter on his little mouth).  After he developed an all over body rash last week, I decided it was time for a change in the yard. This weekend all the oleander bushes were dug up and replaced with rose bushes.  Beautiful… and peace of mind returns!

  1. What a sweet puppy mom you are!

  2. At least if he eats the roses, he will smell nice! 🙂

  3. Pretty, wish I could do that. I don’t really like oleanders and we have a ton of them all along one side of our yard and the back but to get them dug out, since they’re so established, apparently would cost a couple grand so they’re staying for now. We have kitties but we’ve never had an issue with the oleanders and they sleep in them and everything but I would be more concerned with a puppy.

    • Oh ouch… a couple grand?! I do think they are beautiful though.
