BEGONIA: I saw the best of Begonia at Darjelling and Bomdila. Those varieties don’t survive in plains. But there are varieties which survive even at this place. One such type was presented to me by … at Tejpur. This plant has multiplied and in full bloom at this time. Attaching an image of the flowers of this Begonia.

Flora Picture of the year- 2012- Janani Eswar: I was at a nursery doing some photography that we needed for a project and the sun which was starting to sink hit the begonias kept in the corner. The pink and white just captured everybody’s eye! It was so beautiful I just had to shoot it. I know it’s probably not botanically extremely interesting or something rare, but the colours and and the light just stirred something in me. I sat there till the light passed… it was extremely peaceful.

A really beautiful artistic creation.

Nice story associated with a beautiful herb. I have added this to Flora Picture 2012
