Blooming Begonias

For good reason I associate Begonias with the 1970’s gardens of my IMG_2784childhood.  Maybe, people grew them then because they seemed exotic.  I suspect that a lot of my contemporaries have the idea that begonias are one of those frumpy plants associated with being middle age.  I have no concerns about whether or not my garden is fashionable.  I guess it reflects my quirky taste; I simply embrace whatever appeals to me.  So, Begonias sit at the front of my cottage garden border; plump, pretty flowers with  petals in pastel pink and buttery yellow.  What isn’t to like?
