Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.
That was then....graceful but finicky cottage blossoms, ephemeral but lovely to celebrate in rhyme.... never mind the dark historical back story....
But this is NOW...
Mary, Mary, don't be contrary
Choose a flower that will give us a show!
Whether Bada Boom or Nightlife,
Cocktail or Harmony,
We know these begonias will grow!
The 21st century gardener's version of pretty maids all in a row.. upon row.. upon row.
When all else fails...including imagination...we wind up with a greenhouse of marching bronze leaved begonias.
