A Little Surprise!

I was surprised the other day to find that a plant that popped up in last years multi pot planter from the nursery had bloomed. I have been watching it and as it filled out, I said it was a begonia. I was right! And it turned out to be a white begonia and I was only to save the pink begonias from last year. This one stayed outside through the whole winter and I'm very amazed that it survived. The plant had died back with nothing above the soil. I had brought the pink begonias inside to make sure they survived. What is your favorite color of begonias? © 2020 Karen Gros, All rights reserved

I've never grown any so I suppose they'd all be my favorites.

Little things can be blessings. I agree, probably your climate there is bad and too dry. They thrive on the humidity here.

Oh no! Can you try to root it? I would give it a try, or if roots are good, just replant. Good luck!

I have always loved gardening but didn't have time for it when working full time. Now that I'm retired, I'm making an effort!

I'm not much for flowers. Though I do like vibrant colors and lovely sents. We don't really want real flowers, as my husband's afraid they'd attract to many bees to our house.

I have found much joy in raising flowers and gardening for the last couple of years. It's really a calm hobby and enjoyable.
