Fuchsia

The Fuchsia plant.

Not exactly a November blossom.

I took this photograph last Summer while visiting the Pacific Northwest.


It's the "color" of Fuchsia that got me thinking.


This is a Mandevilla plant.
It's in a container in my courtyard here in Las Vegas.


We have been having such beautiful, mild temperatures lately that this beauty is thriving!


Such a lovely fuchsia color to see this time of year. 


Although, the Christmas tree is up it's hard to feel "Christmassy" just yet.

I think that's about to change though, 
it's supposed to get cold and windy by tomorrow night. 

I'm not sure how this Mandevilla will weather the cold, so I wanted to share it with you today. 


I'm off now to spend some time outside enjoying the warm sun and color while it lasts.

Sending you warm, November sunshine and color for the rest of your week.  

Becca

Your flower reminds me of my Christmas cactus that is this bright color, it always blooms this time of year and brings brightness to an other wise rather dull world. Enjoy your last days of sun.

yes, our weather turned to freezing these last 2 nights in NE Tx so soak in the warmth while you've got it!

Oh, seeing you beautiful photos of the fuchsia makes me so homesick. My mother loved this plant and filled our garden with it. Thanks for sharing. xx

The color or it reminds me of a hibiscus plant I had when we lived in Tempe, AZ. Love this!

Love fuchsias, especially like this one with the bright colours and super frilly "skirts".

Fuchsia is my favorite color but would you believe I never knew it's also a plant? Shows my ignorance:) You have a lovely blog, and you're so pretty, what gorgeous hair you have! I noticed you like Ol' blue eyes and jazz. My daughter sings jazz and blues from the 40s 50s and 60s, she won't sing anything beyond that. I brought her up on oldies but goodies, because I grew up in New York so I was always playing that music here in Rome when she was growing up. I'm Sicilian and my husband is Japanese but at the moment we're in Rome. I'm following you immediately.

It is nice to see such lovely flowers when everything here is covered with snow.

Catherine said...

I love their bright colours, so nice!

Judy S. said...

Very pretty! I wonder whether they'd grow here? You'll be able to have your own fuchsia here. There's also a hardy type that comes up every year. Didn't you just recently celebrate a b'day? If so, belated wishes!

Fuchsia is a very beautiful flower of so many varieties! Wonderfully photographed! Never heard of Mandevilla yet, a lovely flower!
