Good morning Shelley how are you keeping. Finally winter is coming to an end here. Looking forward to pottering in the garden. I’ve been ILL throughout but I’m picking up again. Hope alls okay with you🤗

@godfreye good afternoon Enid! So sorry to hear you have been ill! Hope it isn't serious! So glad winter is over, although bits of it wants to hang on! 😐, There hasn't been much to post about thru winter and now I'm afraid I'm a little preoccupied with a breast cancer diagnosis, so that will be my summer I'm afraid. But I will fight for better health! So nice of you to inquire! Take care my friend! 💘😍

Love that you’re a #begonia person too. You have a lot of the same ones I do. The leaves Rex, in particular, are so unique. Peach fuzz so shiny, light refractive leaf surface is like no other. It is hard to show that in a picture but with your eyes, amazing

If I’m right about this Rex, it’s leaves are going to turn a beautiful bronze color. This one looks a few months old. I think 🤔 I have this one. It’s one of the few, in our collection, that I don’t know the cultivar name for.

@columbiariver I don't know! I haven't done a thing to this! It's still outside!😲 I've brought them in before only to put them back out in the spring and they up and die on me, so I don't bother anymore! When they were in the house, I do know they can take an awful lot of very bright light and they did good!💘😍

I might toss mine. I had it outside to start. Tried sun, shade, less water, everything. Then I read the don't like water on their foliage, but love steam. Bathroom is its last stop. Too high maintenance 😜😂😚 @ShelleySnyder
