haiku my heart - the fuchsia flower


A carnival ride,



Swirling magenta transforms--



Spun cotton candy.

  10. Fuchsias always look like fancy hats to me. I just hung two pots last week -- the hummingbirds need a place to play.

  16. Margaret,
    I adore these particular flowers. It seems that they absolutely know how to dress putting together the finest outfit for Spring. They sway in the breeze unbothered the wind. They are dancers all. Their brightly colored bulbs hold such a promise! Beautiful post!
    xoxo,

  19. Beautiful flowers, reminds me of my childhood visits to grandma every summer in Guanajuato, Mexico; we use to cut the flowers and wear them as earings while strolling @ the plaza & the open street market! that was over 30 years ago!
