Bloomin in the Rain

Greetings from my garden home,
There are many many things in bloom right now but this is peak garden-work time so I don't have as much time to blog or take pictures when I am pulling weeds and watering, although looks like we will have day 7 of rain this week. When it comes to color, I am not an orange lover but this particular begonia really caught my eye and then I saw the name "Million Kisses, Devotion" you know I couldn't resist.
 I do wish it was hot pink though.I am going to go over and join the folks at Bloomin Tuesday with Ms Jean Green Thumb.Come on over if you want to see some gardens and flowers. And just is case it is raining where you are, here's an umbrella to keep you dry.
Have a wonderful week as you prepare for the family picnics, parades, and fun. Blessings Meg

What a gorgeous Begonia, I see why you couldn't resist it! :) Wish it was raining here, hasn't rained in weeks. :(

The begonia is definitely and "eye catcher". I can see how you would notice. Have a blessed week. Sandi

Love your begonia. Like you, I'm a lover of pinks/purples in my garden, but I absolutely love a splash of orange, red and yellow too. This "splash" is particularly gorgeous!

Beautiful planter. What an interesting name. I wish you could send some rain to Phillidelphia, they really need it. Jean

Hello, Meg. Like you, I don't care for orange in my garden. I do love begonias, and I can understand why you chose this one. Lovely. Thanks for the umbrella ... oh, how I wish I could use it, but not a drop ... we need rain so much. Pam x

G'morn, Meg ~
Begonias are a favorite ... Mother had many in her porch ledge flower boxes ... each year she took them in & the next year they were once again ready for another gorgeous display.

Yours is beautiful.

Love the little chickies.

Happy PS,
Have a lovely summer day ~
