My hunky husband waters the plants. It’s part of the joy of summer. And the rich purple and red of the fuchsia. Fuchsia is such a rich color, it has become a color of its own.
As the season reaches its peak, the fuchsia begin to grow long, with trailing branches dropping past the fence on the deck.
I see fewer new blossoms, fewer buds, but more seed pods. It is high summer for us, but rounding the corner to the end of the season for fuchsia.
The pictures were taken using the Olympus PEN PL-6 with an f2.8 60 mm macro lens or the Pentax Q7 using an f1.8 8.5 mm prime “normal.”
