The colour of this begonia is so vibrant - I love it.

Lovely photo! Simply lovely!


I just fell in love with this plant at the nursery. It has such bright blossoms and the most perfect rounded shape you could wish for with no pinching back on my part. This is the beginning of its second round of blooms. I have it in a terra cotta pot at the place of honor in the center of my outdoor table.


Lovely picture. Is that perchance a picture taken at Longwood Gardens?


A pretty little bloomer!


Kim -- The photo is of a potted plant in my back yard. All the photos on the blog are from my yard and garden unless noted otherwise. There's a beautiful world of flora and fauna just outside my door!
