A Fantasy of Fuchsias (or The Neglected Fuchsias of 2015)


By hywel


Choose your own title …

Lots of photos :o(

Because other things took priority this summer, my Fuchsias have suffered some neglect, in that they only got watered and dead headed when I could get round to it,
but they actually put on a lovely display.

I haven’t been able to show you any photos of them for a long time, but here’s a blog with a few nice ones that flowered during the summer, and into the autumn …

… well, I say a ‘few’ … but you know when I start to show photos of my Fuchsias, I don’t know when to stop ! lol
so you can stop whenever you think you’ve had enough ;o)

I showed lots of hardy ones in my previous blog, and I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some more of my collection :o)

They are winding down now, ready for their winter’s rest. I hope we get a mild winter because I worry about them ;o)

Its a WOW from me as well Hywel, they really are a wonderful sight, you have some beauties here and judging by your photo's they have done you proud, I think the white and lilac ones are my favourites, they always remind me of ballerina's dancing, lol....

Its easy to see why you have so many - how could you possibly choose favourites? They are fantastic.

Hywel, I began by thinking I liked one more than another, then I'd see another I liked even more, then another, then another. In the end I gave up...they're all gorgeous!

Absolutely Spectacular!! And all those lovely names ..

So many Hywel!! That must take some time putting them to bed for the winter, never mind deadheading in the summer! A wonderful selection though and some really unusual ones. I still love Swingtime as my favourite, always have.....thanks for sharing them.
