Saturday Flowers: Begonia

I think this is Begonia Hiemalis. Please correct me if it is not. The Reiger Begonia (also known as Rieger Begonia, Begonia hiemalis, and Winter Begonia) is a hybrid of wax begonia species and tuberous begonias.

My new friend, Mary, from my town of birth in Borneo posted a beautiful flower. I remembered I went to take photos in my friend Annie's garden, but I didn't post them. I didn't plan to take photos, she wasn't home, so I started to snap the photos. She had sat the pot on the ground so i actually had to go down on my knees. Then she came home. She is a good friend and knows I blog. She said I was welcomed to snap any photo I liked.

I love the colour of the begonia, so sweet!

They are very beautiful, such a hot coral red color.
At least, nobody saw you staying on your knees. I was laying on the ground for my crocus photos, to the astonishment of the passers-by, but it was worth.
Have a great weekend Ann!

Our Begonias here are very small and not as pretty as this. But this one must be a different kind, have not seen any here like this!

Unknown said...

they have such a nice color!

Lui said...

I've never seen one (or might have missed it!) but it sure looked beautiful!

I'm sure your friend will not mind because you only took a shot and not the pot!;-)

As begônias são muito decorativas e tem cores exuberantes... alegram qualquer ambiente.
Boa semana!

What a glorious color! I love begonias but cannot grow one, I don't have a green thumb for them. A pretty color to brighten the rainy day here in Maine!

That's a lovely begonia, Ann! The tuberous begonias can be so rewarding to grow and they flower profusely if they find the right spot.

Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos.
