Pretty in Purple (Again)

I’ve always loved fuchsia but have never had much luck  growing them. I picked this plant up this summer on sale from the grocery store. Poor thing it had been baked in the hot summer sun and tossed in a cart on it’s way to the trash. I thought – I can’t do much worse. Well, here it is fall and low and behold it’s still alive. The colors are so happy and vibrant they make me smile. I hope they make you smile too. Enjoy 🙂
