“Red Robin”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
I haven’t seen any of our American robins yet this year. They usually start showing up here in the coastal South around the end of February. I thought that maybe with the warmer temperatures we have been having lately, they would arrive a little earlier than normal the way spring seems to be here so early. But, so far, no robin redbreasts are to be seen.
There is, however, one red robin that seems to be putting out fresh, new leaves to mark the beginning of spring. I am referring to the rex begonia, Harmony’s Red Robin.
It has such rich, deep colors. With its black center, brilliant red bands, dark border and iridescent quality, this begonia is a real standout. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, isn’t this a perfectly colored plant for that special day?
