I asked SWMBO what these blossoms were called and she told me "begonias". That's be-GON-yas with a long O. Whenever I hear a word like that it takes me back to a trip I took some years ago with my friend Steve. I'll call him Baseball Steve to distinguish him from other Steves and Stephens who read this blog. Baseball Steve is the guy who has treated me to many Diamondbacks games.
Anyway, we made a trip one Fourth of July to the tiny town of Patagonia, in southern Arizona. Patagonia is pronounced like begonia.
And that took me further back to a song I heard decades ago. Turn up your sound, please, and listen to the mastery of B.B. King.
