The subjects in these three photos are quite different, but all say delicate to me – a fragile bubble, the soft petals of a begonia and a fresh blanket of snow ready to fall with the first breeze. Which photo most means delicate to you?
Extra – fun Begonia fact: did you know that you can overwinter tuberous begonias and restart their growth in the spring? I simply bring mine in before the first frost, stop watering it and let the foliage die back and leave it in the dry earth over winter. (If you don’t want a pot of soil hanging around all winter, you can lift the tubers out and store them in cardboard in a dry place.) In the spring, I freshen the potting mix and start watering it again. The begonia photo above is a plant that I have had for three seasons. It is resting now. You can see other tuberous begonia tips here.
