Begonias

My  Begonia  Garden

 
 

If I had a garden today, I would have hanging baskets
and planters of tuberous begonias.
 
Begonias come in many varieties, from the small Wax Begonias found in yards
 all over America, to the newer varieties like Rieger Begonias, and then
the magnificent tuberous begonias shown here.  I have found some of the
most beautiful tuberous begonias in great hanging baskets at the Montreal
 Botanic Gardens and others in Philadelphia and Chicago.
( I did not take all of these photos; some are from the internet. )

  1. I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music. See the link below for more info.
