Fuchsia




Another favourite of ours is the fuchsia. Each year we go to a nursery called Hill Top and buy them as small cuttings. This year we were very late visiting this nursery so were limited in our choice. Also the leaves seem to have some sort of disease, this has never happened before. The leaves turn a yellowish colour and then drop off but it hasn't stopped them flowering. I've just managed to capture the two in the hanging baskets before the first flush of flowers start going over.

I've always loved fuschias. When I was little I loved to pop them. Probably not really great for the bud but it was great fun...

Very pretty! I keep meaning to get myself a fushia plant. They always remind me of little pink dancers. My folks have them in their backyard.

Hi Ann! Thanks for stopping by sunny, not California.

I have tried Furoshiki with cloth table napkins, too. I wrap guest favors in napkins and then of course the napkin is used for the meal. It really makes a nice embellishment on the table.

It's 11:49 here. I know it's almost 8:00 PM there. Have a wonderful evening!

Hugs, KJ
