Last year on about June first I was exhausted from worrying over Samba dying that I took a break and went shopping for some food. While out, there was a stand of plants for sale...how could I resist? I walked in and thought I ought to cheer up myself with a new plant. I bought this beautiful begonia and it bloomed and grew, albeit a bit leggy throughout winter. I put it outside this spring and it has filled in and grown beautifully! It's a nice reminder of my buddy... I hope I can keep it alive for a long time!
