Musings on cats, travel, gardens and life

After yesterday’s rain I went for a walk in my garden and found wax begonias blooming heartily where I planted them earlier this year.
I may have neglected them but they didn’t neglect me. Next year I shall add to their numbers.
Sharing with Cee’s Flower of the Day and Past Squares.

Beautiful photos for today and Becky’s squares 😀
Thanks so much! I couldn’t resist these happy little flowers and they squared nicely! 🙂 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Great to see those, and so colourful too!
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks Pete. I tend to take them for granted but they’re so faithful to bloom all season long. 🙂
oh these are gorgeous – so glad you have joined us again 😀
Thanks so much! 🙂 🙂
Since I know NOTHING about gardening…they are workhorses because they take care of themselves and bloom all year?
Yes, that’s how I see it! I planted them in a container earlier this year then pretty much ignored them. And while the rest of my garden looks pretty sad right now, here they are just blooming away!
How brightly and beautiful! I think we had some begonias in Houston, but they don’t do well in Denver. You’re lucky to have so much lush beauty where you live!
Thanks so much! I feel like I neglected my garden this year so I was happy to find these begonias still cheerfully blooming! 😊
Some things actually prefer a little benign neglect. My succulents are that way (thank goodness 😉).
All gardens need some of those!
This is such a beautiful plant! We used to have some of these in pots inside the house when I was young. Maybe I should get some!
Aren’t they wonderful? And so versatile! 😊😊
Thanks so much!
Thank you! They’re such sweet little flowers!
They sure are! I always love your beautiful photography! 🙂
Gorgeous pictures, Susanne!
Thanks so much! So much beauty right in my own backyard! 🙂 🙂
