My garden is a fictional plot. At no time have I considered myself to be proficient in identifying or growing any green thing. Or any other colored thing, for that matter. You might remember a few years back when I was totally excited about the first tiny green tomato that grew from its upside down plant. What an experience that was.
Somewhere along the way, a daughter bought this gorgeous begonia because I drooled, ever so slightly, and...after all, what's a daughter to do when she knows her mother wants something?
Unfortunately, the plant lasted only long enough for a few photos but I can still see those leaves which looked air brushed with metallic paint and the tiny blossoms which had more appeal than a chocolate-covered cherry. I'd never seen anything like it and don't expect I'll run into another one in this lifetime. Absolutely beautiful.
I checked the American Begonia Society site and decided it might be of the 'rex' family. What do you think?
My first NaNoWriMo Novel can be found in iBooks on iTunes. Isn't that amazing?
