With the mercury rising to 34C, and no rain in sight, one likes to see cool colours
The begonias are in flower, most of the flowers being in shades of pink.
The blossoms of Begonia 'Dancing Girl' dance when there is even a slight breeze. But the days are still and hot now.
Many begonias have their origin in India. You can come across quite a few varieties of wild begonias if you go to the forests of the Western Ghats. The home of the Rex begonia is the north eastern state of Assam.
