Beautiful Begonias

Containers continue to survive, even thrive on the patio.
The begonias are blooming more now than they did all summer.


  1. Such a cheery sight and so late in the season. We've been FAR below freezing...not even the mums are up to the challenge. Lucky you!

  2. Your begonias are giving you much joy at this time of year. Do they head inside when it gets colder?

    Enjoy each day ~ Hugs ~ FlowerLady

    1. I took some cuttings earlier. The ones in the photos will stay out until it gets too cold and then will join the composting items.

  3. I love Begonias, they are such pretty flowers. Nice that they last so long also.

  4. My mother-in-law used to bring them inside. She had the best luck with flowers spending the winter inside. Her little family room was full of plants. The begonias were always blooming...not like other plants that sort of went dormant. Yours are so pretty.

  5. I have a soft spot for begonias - they are all inside now for their long Winter's sleep!

  6. Love the Begonias. Great plants and glad they're doing well for you.

  7. Begonia semperflorens are tough old boots aren't they? Although, I must say that they are going over proper here in the UK now. Your's still look so fresh and lovely, and are one of my favourite 'bedders'.

  8. pushing out those last blooms, love it!

  9. They are so pretty. Mine did not bloom this summer either but are getting so many buds now. Maybe it was just too hot for the poor things these hot and dry summer. Have a great week!

  10. I still have some blooming in my flower beds. They lived under the leaves last winter and did well all summer. They are still going.
