Perpetual


Here's a salmon coloured begonia. It seems to flower all year round. I notice the tuberous begonias a beginning to put out leaves ... how exciting to see a new cycle begin.

Reflection:
1 Corinthians 13:8 (New International Version)
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

  1. This one is NOT a tuberous begonia, then? I have two little bits of begonia, both quite different. I think one (the smashed smaller one) is a white "thousand wonder" but I am not sure what t'other is. It flowers a lot of the year and has long thick tuber-looking things above ground. I knicked it from an old place of abode a few years ago.

  2. No this one is a cane begonia. The tuberous ones have showier flowers with leaves that die down in autumn and come back up at this time of year ... flower in Feb/March in the garden ... earlier from the hot houses.

    Take a look at thethe American Begonia Societywebsite, it shows the different types of begonias.
