What unusual pics !!

The splash of color of the kerchief is brilliant .

The budding Fuchsia looks like a scrawny fledgling ...and we know how impressive it grows to! :)

Both are extraordinary. I would never guess that bud will be fuscia! Thanks for teaching me something, Jams.

Love fuchsias but it's too hot here for them. If I had good sense, I'd live somewhere else!!!
The handkerchief is psychodelic! Love the high color.

Hi Jams - Very interesting juxtaposition. What an "odd couple" those two photos make. I love the handkerchief -- very abstract.
