Good evening all! Been a very chilly day here today! Unfortunately the frost last night did for my last few #begonia 'Illumination' plants but they've had a good run! Hope you've all had a lovely day! 😀

I was one of those, I walked straight past them at the GC earlier in the year, dismissing them entirely. I have seen so many beautiful photos on here this summer that they will be my first stop next spring Ian. 😊 😊 @bigemrg
