Blooming Tuesday - Trailing Begonia

The other evening I tried my hand at drawing and painting part of an arrangement I made with some flowers and ferns from the garden. I didn't do the entire bouquet but just one of each items in the bouquet. The trailing begonia 'Bonfire' is now one of my favorite begonias. It holds up to the heat and humidity and anything else you throw at it. Like cutting off the draping limbs for bouquets. This is also my favorite vase. It is small, black and has a basket weave pattern. A terrible rendition of it. I didn't get its shape at all. I will have to have another go at it.  I hope you all have a Happy Blooming Tuesday.

Looks like a simple but nice arrangement. The trailing begonia is nice that it's soft...

This flower is new to me. I like your painting very much. I will have to try them in a planter. My begonias are somebody's lunch, and it's always frustrating....
