Thanks guys :-)

Carol, I have a number of hardy fuschias. I started with around a half dozen and decided not to replace any that couldn't winter over. I have four left, two like that one, a pink one and a red one. The hummers really work them over.

That's really interesting that your zone is capable of having fushcias as perennials. Cool.

Lovely photos. I like the way you put names to all your photos. Some of the plants are unfamiliar to me, but it's nice to be able to put a name on them.
