Little Thing, Big Happy

This begonia, which was given to me by my son for mother’s day when he was in first grade.  It got frostbitten when I left it outside one evening in December.  Hey, it’s CA, we’re generally not used to having frost days!  But it’s growing back nicely, for which I am very glad.

Apparently my mom still has a begonia my brother gave her when he was in 1st or second grade, which makes it over 30 years old.  She said the trick is to keep it in the same pot, but change out the soil every 3 or 4 years or so.
