Picked some begonias!

My "art daughter", Tamara sent me some bulbs about 3? years ago. I had commented that I loved the flower but they were so hard to grow! Turns out her dad owned a nursery in Santa Cruz, CA that specialized in begonia bulbs.
She surprised me with several of these beauties! I found the right spot and they keep coming back!!!!!
Artists are the most generous friends!!!!!!!!!!!!
