Wow, I think what you got turned out better than the picture on the tag. I love that begonia. What a lovely color!

Amy

I've had a few surprises with my plant purchases too, but somehow they've all worked out in the end. I love the begonia you ended up with - I've never seen one with those colours before.

Kathleen

Thanks Perennial Garden Lover & Amy. I am really liking the color combo too, even tho I thought it was something else. Definitely a keeper!

Cinj

Well, I'd say it's better than what you thought you bought too. I love those colors. Maybe God wanted to reward you for your patience with something just a little sweeter??

Marnie

Same experience with the last daylilies I ordered. The catalog photos can look a little--or a lot different than the flowers actually look in the garden.

That's a nice thought Cinj!!!

Kathleen

I agree Marnie. and I can see how to some extent after my own photography experiences. This one just seemed like a completely different color combination altogether...

Donna

The top one reminds me of a square dancers skirt and yours reminds me of a ballet tutu. Yours is more elegant.

Kathleen

That's a great comparison Donna! I like it! Thanks.
