This is my dark leafed begonia, ( called Muddy Waters) it is a plant for the livingroom in our climate and it blooms in Winter for several months, the flowers are tiny but very pretty. Look at the flowerbuds, they have dark pink freckles, so cute. The leafs are almost black and have a beautiful shape. It is such an easy plant. In Summer it can stay outside in a shady place.
We are at the end of the Easter weekend, I love Easter but it was an early Easter this year so the weather was not good enough to do some work in the garden. I did some sowing in the greenhouse and the strawberry plants I replanted in the greenhouse a few weeks ago (I kept them in a pot last year) are now growing nicely and they are getting flowers !!
Remember my begonia Muddy Waters who started to bloom in December ?
THIS WAS TAKEN ON DECEMBER 23 RD LAST YEAR
THIS WAS TAKEN TODAY, IT HASN’T STOPPED FLOWERING FOR OVER 3 MONTHS NOW AND IT IS STILL MAKING NEW FLOWERSTALKS. AND LOOK AT THESE SWEET LITTLE FLOWERS !
I hope I can soon showing pictures from my garden, this Winter is taking too much time !!!
He is doing it again my Begonia Muddy Waters, in the middle of the dark season, when the days are short and grey Mister Muddy is doing it again; blooming. The buds are tiny but so very pretty, I love it ! He has almost black leafs and it is a leaf begonia, you don’t buy him for his abundant blooms. It is one of the easiest potplants I know and in Winter I love to see his tiny flowers.
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR !
