LOOKING TOWARDS THE FUCHSIA!









And do you remember me mentioning Lady Boothby..the climbing Fuchsia....well this is a photo of one of the branches ABOVE the 6 foot high fence.....it was cut completely to ground level at the end of last Autumn. Lady Boothby was bred from an original Brazilian species in 1939 and named after the founder of the British Fuchsia Society.


My first FULL day at college today........and first day in Bury St Edmunds...lots more new faces and new lecturers to meet. A shame I won't be there on Saturday evenings as one of our fellow Bloggers Ruby (Living in Bury St Edmunds) is actually lecturing there in a course about BLOGGING!!

What a fantastic fuchsia - really stunning and great that it survives the winter.

Have a great day at college - and a lecturer on blogging!

Now that is a course you could run yourself!

My favourite plant, always as plenty of colour and insects love them. I do hope all went well for you today and you are not to worn out with it all.

Meg Wolff said...

Beautiful fuschia! Back to college, that is great...and a course on blogging, very cool. I managed to get over the problem of getting on your site!

Annie said...

Should you have the chance to go on Saturday evening, I imagine Ruby would let you sit in and hear her lecture.

But perhaps you will be ready to rest your brain on Saturday for it's being stretched, isn't it.

The fuschia plant is stretching as well.

Hope college went well today Ruth.
I loved Silas Marner, I read it in High School, and several times since.In fact I enjoyed anything by George Eliot.
The fuschias are amazing, I've never had one in the garden, just as house plants.

Hope it has been a great day! Such lovely fuschias, and that LB is amazing. Mine aren't even knee high this year.
