At first I thought they were roses, but the leaf is not a rose leaf, so I decided they must be begonias.FOTD 5th September 2020: Begonia
Something from last January
Begonias come in all shapes and sizes and colours, but I quite liked the orange version.
A good selection of colours, but they are all begonias
I remember these begonias. The village gardeners had planted them in a flower arrangement in a bed next to a road crossing that I often passed when going into town. Begonias are simple flowers, at lest this kind, but have their attraction.
To be quite honest I had no idea what this was, but now have an app PlantSnap, recommended by an online colleague which helps me to identify my flowers. There were a few choices, one being Crown of thorns, but the begonia version seems to be more likely.
Begonias are the ideal potted plant. I took this sometime in Summer at the local store.
Early I know, but if you get your begonias from a gardening suppliers, everything is possible.
