Strawberry begonias

My cousin Kathy brought us some of my Grandma’s old-fashioned strawberry begonias as a housewarming present.  They started blooming a few days ago.  They’re not showy at arm’s length, but close-to, they’re really lovely delicate little flowers.

See the dog hair adorning the top of the flower?  Welcome to my life.

The plants are creepers, and are named after strawberries because they throw out new baby plants on long runners.

No runners in this photo – the plant has been making them and throwing them over the edge, but I’ve been tucking them back into the pot.  I’m thinking this will go into a shady space in the side yard.
