FOTD – January 2 – Fuchsia

I was following along with Cee, mirroring whatever flower she was showing with something similar. But alas, I have never grown a dahlia and probably never will. My garden and I are just not getting along that well anymore. I really wish I had tried while I could, but I made a deal with my spine to stop all that bending and stooping. So instead, I grow indoor plants and things that hang from poles. Owen says he will put up another post or two next spring and I’ll have room to grow fuchsias again.

  1. Beautiful images.., did you use the EM1 II? If so, what lens?


    • These were taken over a bunch of years. About the only thing I’m reasonably sure of is that they were Olympus cameras and probably a variety of Pens from the 3 onward. I think that is about 5 years of Fuchsia.


  2. They’re beautiful! I’m also hoping to try fuchsias again this year!


    • Last year, the birds destroyed the fuchsia. They kept nesting in it and broke all the branches. Owen will have to build me a separate post for flowers. We did salvage the fuchsia and it lives and is flowering in Owen’s window downstairs. We got a mid-winter bloom which I didn’t think was possible.
