Fuchsias

Fuchsia magellanica still in full bloom and will be until the frosts come.

Fucshia. Oh, you and your fancy name colors, jams. A more manly man would have called them just plain pink. I'm waiting for you to start saying magenta and chartreuse in descriptions next, and reviewing some Pet Shop Boys music. :)

This is a very lovely flower, and reminds me of the many varieties of "Trumpet" vines and blooms we have here in Texas. I have a yellow trumpet vine, an orange one, and a PINK trumpet blossom bush. Notice how I refrained from saying fucshia?

Oooh, I nearly forgot, this morning I heard yet another SPARKS song that I greatly enjoyed. So, now that makes TWO, yep, count them, TWO SPARKS song that I absolutely adore. That disco like "Heaven" song, and now their track, "So Important." It was surprisingly good. In fact, I wasn't paying any attention to the XM digital readout until this song started playing, and I thought, "This is good stuff. Who is this?"

Hmm I shall call then "sort of pinkish" instead! Let's say I am "not good with colours".... I love Fuchsias, partly because they remind me of holidays in SW Ireland. They grow wild there now forming wonderful hedgerows

Two Sparks songs now? I am impresed.. Give 20 years and You'll have a mixtape full!
