A few days ago, I drove a friend to the airport. On the way home, I decided to stop at a local nursery to see what was available.

Even though it was 88ºF outside, the more delicate plants were inside a makeshift “greenhouse” of plastic sheeting to protect them from colder nighttime temps. I spotted this gorgeous hanging fuchsia plant and took the next three shots with my iPhone:

Don’t they look like ballerinas?

Of course, I bought the plant. The shot above was taken with my Nikon and I titled it “Fuchsia Ballet.”

Great weekend, everyone!

    I love photo number three. Glossy colors. I got a huge fuchisa as a present once but it didn’t survive.

    A fuscia ballet and a joy-making performance at that! Great pics, Carole. Still patiently, well maybe not so patiently, awaiting spring’s arrival. Big fluffy snowflakes outside my window as I write this.
