Angel Wing Begonias from California

This card reached me in the middle of the winter, when it was extremely cold here in Germany. You can imagine that this sunny greetings from California came at the right time. It's is a beautiful outlook to coming springtime. Desiree wrote about the warm days and cold nights over there, and that the yard is blooming soon. The Angel Wing Begonias are among her favorite flowers. Their color can change from pinks to red depending on the amount or lack of sun, she wrote.
Thank you very much for this precious little piece of art, Desiree. I love it!

Very nice Desiree, spring has come early for us. I agree this bit of spring sent through the mail would brighten any winter.

Desiree, I can't imagine how you can have such color in the middle of winter! But it sure is a gift to us here in Europe!It is a beautiful sketch, colorful, full of vibrancy and life...like your personality.

We’re in the middle of the spring flower count here in Victoria (carried out to show how much better our climate is than the rest of Canada) but we don’t have anything like this yet. Beautifully painted, Desiree.

One never doubts for a moment that Desiree has a real knowledge and passion for the flowers she paints. She makes a real garden from the end of her brush. Delightful.
