Old Fashioned Wax Begonias





Posted by Picasa

I remember these from Grandmother and aunt's gardens, they always over wintered some in the house.  I took these photos at a local garden center.

These bring back a lot of memories for me too--My Mom had them and they were a favorite for Mother's Day.

I love wax Begonias too. I plant the pink in one of garden areas every year.

They were in my own grandmother's garden as well. I love them.

Your pictures are great! The begonias appear to glow in the sunlight. I find little wax begonias indispensable for shade.

Pretty blue bells and other signs of summer in full bloom. As I see your doggies on your sidebar, I know why that black and white pooch popped out at you. The one by that great blue country sink. Thanks for visiting.
Weekend Blessings ;-)
