Flowering Begonia

A Begonia flowering in the middle of winter in the living room!   It must be a miracle.   And here I was just hoping to keep it alive.   Tiny new leaves are forming along with the flower buds.  How exciting!!   And the living room is cold……………except when the electric heat comes on, then the baseboards overheat the bookcases and the plants beneath the windows dry out.   It’s like a desert in there.  Would think the extreme range in temps would be tough on them.

But yesterday the Begonia was soaking up the heat of the full sun and the humidity formed by the pool of water collecting in the dish below–and it seems it was getting exactly what it needs.  And accidentally at that.
