Wonderful foliage.....Blossoms were insignificant but it may not be bloom season.

Paul: That is a beautiful angel wing begonia! I'm not good at comparing photo's at all but it reminds me a lot of one I had about ten years ago that was named 'Sinbad'.

Lin.....that is it. I didn't take a good picture of the blossoms so appreciate seeing them in you first picture because that was the way they looked. I love the pink glow on the leaves. Thanks

You are very welcome Paul ... I did notice some little blooms visible in your first photo. The leaves and blooms sure look like the 'Sinbad' that I used to grow!
